Outline of the Conference

 SRI is the international conference on synchrotron radiation instrumentation that is related to synchrotron radiation light sources and beam line techniques, experimental techniques, and applications in synchrotron radiation science. Following successful conferences in Hamburg (1982), Stanford (1985), Tsukuba (1988), Chester (1991), and Stony Brook (1994), the 6th International Conference on Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation (SRI) will be held from August 4 to August 8, 1997, in Himeji in western Japan. The conference will be hosted by the SPring-8 Project Team that has been constructing a third-generation synchrotron radiation facility in a hard X-ray region with a storage ring of 8 GeV.

 The year 1997 is a memorial year, marking the 50th anniversary since synchrotron radiation was first observed. Over the last decade, remarkable advances have been made in the development of light sources, radiation optics and experimental techniques as well as in science in general. Recently, several third-generation synchrotron radiation facilities have come into use or are under construction. Since remarkable scientific results have been obtained from the utilization of these facilities, it is a good opportunity to bring together scientists and engineers from a number of diverse fields working in synchrotron radiation science.

 The scientific program will include following topics :

 

Light sources and beam line techniques

  Accelerators

  Insertion devices

  SR beam position monitors

  Optics

  Micro beams

Experimental techniques

  Spectroscopy

  Diffraction and scattering

  Imaging

  Detectors

  Use of coherent SR beams

  Use of high energy SR beams

  Use of short bunch(es)

Industrial applications

Medical applications

Next generation SR and sciences

Facility reports

 

 

Tentative Program of SRI '97

 The scientific program consists of plenary sessions, and oral and poster presentation sessions including facility reports.

 

 Except for the opening lecture, plenary sessions and the special lecture on "Fifty Years of Synchrotron Radiation," papers will be mainly presented in poster sessions.

 The Program Committee may request that several of the posters be presented orally, in addition to the invited talks.
