CONEXS Kick-off Meeting
CONEXS Kick-off Meeting
The aim of the EPSRC funded COllaborative NEtwork for X-ray Spectroscopy (CONEXS) is to establish a strong UK community for X-ray spectroscopy whose primary focus is to nurture a strong synergy between experiment and theory.
The kick-off meeting will include discussions around the structure of the network and opporuntities it can provide. There will also be plenty of opportunities for wider discussion with other participcants.

CONEXS: next steps
Advances in experimental methodology aligned with technological developments, such as 3rd generation light sources, X-ray Free Electron Lasers (X-FELs) and High Harmonic Generation (HHG), has led to a paradigm shift in the capability of X-ray spectroscopy, including absorption, emission, inelastic scattering and photoelectron, to deliver highly detailed information about the geometric, electronic, spin structure and dynamics on an extremely broad range of samples in a wide array of different environments. However, the complex nature and high information content of this class of techniques means that detailed theoretical studies are often essential to provide a firm link between the spectroscopic observables and the underlying structure and dynamics.
This EPSRC funded network aims to bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working in the area X-ray spectroscopy to achieve new levels of understanding, especially for the interpretation of experimental data. From the perspective of the computational community, direct engagement with experimentalists can highlight theoretical challenges and act as a catalyst for the development of new methods. For the experimental community, direct engagement with theoreticians will provide expertise in the new theoretical developments providing new opportunities for data analysis.
Parking on Campus
Due to a large number of building works on site, parking on the Harwell Campus is extremely limited and visitors’ parking cannot be guaranteed. We strongly recommend travelling by public transport, where possible, if you are attending an event at Diamond. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
