DLSR 2016

The Diffraction-Limited Storage-Ring Workshop being organised at DESY March 9 - 11, 2016 is the fifth in a series addressing the science and technology of building and using the next generation of storage rings. There is worldwide interest in upgrading existing storage rings as well as constructing new ones where the electron-beam emittance approaches the diffraction limit down to X-ray wavelengths of one Angstrom. This workshop will focus on both science and accelerator questions addressing new research opportunities and the hardware developments for the storage rings, optics, and instrumentation needed to carry out the science that these new sources will enable.
