Scope of the event

EXSA's main objective to promote innovation and cooperation of X-ray spectroscopists and analysts within Europe will be pursued by this international event, which takes place online June 21st-24th this year.

There will be four half day sessions including a meeting of the FP initiative. The sessions will start shortly after noon in central Europe allowing our colleagues around the world to join at a more or less convenient time in their respective time zones.

Giving a forum at the virtual conference to interact within the community will allow for discussion between, academic and industrial scientists.

  • XRS in environmental applications
  • XRS for novel materials including batteries, nanostructures, etc.
  • Instrumental development for XRS and its applications
  • Fundamental parameters

The Conference targets scientists from academia and industry as well as PhD students and PostDocs with understanding of X-Ray Spectrometry facing challenges in application of X-ray spectrometry. Beside the presentation of experts the event will give a platform for discussions between the participants.
