LCLS-II-HE “First Experiments” Meeting:
AMO, Biology, and Quantum Materials

October 30-31, 2017
Building 51 (Kavli)
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Menlo Park, CA

Meeting Charge
  • Define each significant science opportunity in terms of a “sharp science question” at the grand-challenge level, requiring LCLS-II-HE capabilities, and articulate the broader impact if this question can be answered
  • Outline a “first experiment” (requiring LCLS-II-HE) that would address (or qualitatively advance our understanding) of the question above
  • Outline the essential (priority) requirements in terms of experimental capabilities (X-rays, instrumentation, methods) and highlight the knowledge gaps or key next-steps (e.g. modeling/simulations to assess feasibility and impact, test experiments, technology advance etc.)
