Aim of the workshop

The workshop will focus on recent advances in science at high pressure at third generation synchrotron sources. This meeting will be aimed a variety of experiments using synchrotron-sourced techniques, including XRD, EXAFS, inelastic x-ray scattering, Compton scattering and Mössbauer spectroscopy of crystalline, liquid or amorphous samples. We aim to delineate the state-of-the-art in these wide-ranging techniques and to establish future directions. It will also deal with the rapid progress made in the theoretical interpretation of the experimental results.

 The workshop will consist of approximately 20 invited presentations with ample time reserved for questions and discussion and a poster session.


The workshop is co-organised by people from three groups from the Experiments Division reflecting the different domains of use of high pressure.

  • Michael Hanfland and Mohamed Mezouar, ESRF, Materials Science Group
  • Michael Krisch and Ulrich Ponkratz, ESRF, High Resolution & Resonance Scattering Group
  • Sakura Pascarelli, ESRF, X-ray Absorption & Magnetic Scattering Group
