The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists who use wavelength dispersive optics in the tender and hard X-ray range for photon-in/photon-out spectroscopy. Several beamlines at the ESRF have added X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) to their portfolio and further installations are planned with EBS. A new instrument on ID26 is optimized for tender XES and ID24 will combine a 1-micron beam with XES.  We would like to discuss applications, the theory of XES and instrumentation for wavelength dispersive optics. This also covers high energy resolution fluorescence detected (HERFD) X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES), resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) as well as X-ray absorption spectroscopy using laboratory instruments. We are looking for feedback from the user community concerning pertinent applications that require further instrumental development (e.g. sample environment, time and spatial resolution).


  • Instrumentation for scanning and dispersive, tender and hard XES
  • XES in the applied sciences
  • XES combined with a micron beam
  • Data analysis and theory
