We are very happy to announce that finally, the workshop will take place in a hybrid format from the Maxwell Auditorium at ALBA Synchrotron and through Zoom and Youtube.

Synchrotron ALBA 

ALBA is a third-generation synchrotron light source facility located in the Barcelona Synchrotron Park in Cerdanyola del Vallès near Barcelona and the UAB Campus. 

It is a complex of electron accelerators to produce synchrotron light, which allows the visualization of the atomic structure of matter as well as the study of its properties.  

ALBA currently has eight operational state-of-the-art beamlines, comprising soft and hard X-rays, which are devoted mainly to biosciencescondensed matter (magnetic and electronic properties, nanoscience) and materials science. Additionally, four beamlines are in construction (low-energy ultra-high-resolution angular photoemission for complex materials, microfocus for macromolecular crystallography, absorption and diffraction and fast X-ray tomography & radioscopy).

This large scientific infrastructure provides more than 6.000 hours of beam time per year and is available for the academic and the industrial sector, serving more than 2.000 researchers every year.

ICMAB researchers closely collaborate with ALBA scientists in many experiments and research activities. Together, we have many projects in common, and more to come, with the new ASTIP: ALBA Science, Technology and Innovation Park. 

It was constructed and is operated by CELLS, and co-financed by the Spanish central administration and regional Catalan Government.
