Advanced Photon Source

An Office of Science National User Facility


The APS Ultrafast SIG is currently chaired by Anthony Dichiara and Xiaoyi Zhang in the X-ray Science Division.
This group is organized on the theme of "Science and techniques that use the pulsed structure of the APS to study time-resolved phenomenon from a few picoseconds to microseconds".

The group meets once a month on the third Thursday of the month from noon to 1h15PM, in the 432C conference room.

Meeting's agenda
Several beamlines at the APS involved in ultrafast pump-probe experiments
