The DIAD User Workshop is directed at postgraduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and established scientists in the fields of Material Science, Bioengineering, Geophysics, and energy storage. The workshop will provide a broad-based introduction to the capabilities of DIAD and correlative use of imaging and diffraction.
The workshop objectives are to:
- Provide an overview of the full DIAD beamline capabilities, including options for in-operando/in-situ data collection, automated data processing and future upgrades
- Answer how DIAD can contribute to solving specific scientific research questions
- Showcase presentations from the User Community demonstrating possible science applications
During the workshop:
- Day – 1: The session will start with talks from the beamline staff on the scientific use cases that motivated the development of DIAD and the technical specification (hardware and software) of the beamline including future upgrades. This will be followed by demonstrations of the different hard- and software capabilities available to our users. The session will conclude with an invited talk by a recent User of DIAD.
- Day – 2: This will be a drop-in session where DIAD staff will be on hand to advise potential Users on experiment design, data collection and processing and tips on beamtime proposal writing.
