Frontiers in Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy
Angle-Resolved PhotoEmission Spectroscopy (ARPES)
is the most direct method of studying the momentum dependent electronic
structure of solids. In recent years, this technique has become one of
the key tools in elucidating the connection between electronic, magnetic,
and chemical structure of solids in particular in those complex systems
which can not be appropriately described within the independent-particle
picture. The availability of dedicated ARPES beamlines at state-of-the-art
synchrotron facilities around the world will provide the scientific community
with an invaluable tool in fundamental and industrial condensed matter
The ARPES2005 - New Frontiers Workshop is
sponsored by the Canadian
Light Source Inc. and the British
Columbia Synchrotron Institute. This workshop will be held on April
29th and 30th,
2005 at the University of British
Columbia in the Advanced Materials and Process Engineering Laboratory
British Columbia, Canada.
The aim of this workshop is twofold. First, to explore
the full potential of modern Angle-Resolved PhotoEmission Spectroscopy
in studying the low-energy electronic structure of complex systems and
nanostructured materials. The second goal is to bring together the community
of experts in the field of novel quantum materials, at the national and
international level, who would directly benefit from the development of
a new state-of-the-art facility for Spin and Angle-resolved Photoelectron
Spectroscopy at the Canadian
Light Source. This event will provide exciting discussion opportunities,
and will help to identify the research directions and tools required to
best serve the community.
The invited scientists will contribute expertise in synchrotron based spectroscopes
with specific emphasis on spin and angle-resolved photoemission, in the
synthesis/fabrication of novel quantum materials and nanostructures for
which ARPES is an ideal characterization tool, as well as in the most advanced
theoretical schemes developed to describe the electronic properties of
complex many-body systems. The characteristics of the insertion device
and of the ARPES dedicated end-station to be developed at the Canadian
Light Source will also be discussed.
If you were invited or would like to give a presentation,
please email to ARPES2005NF@physics.ubc.ca
the title and abstract of your contribution as a Word or PDF document.
Note the workshop character: the goal is to have ample time for discussion,
thus the recommended contribution format is a 30 min. presentation plus
10 min. for discussion.
We look forward to meeting you and being your host at the
ARPES2005 - New Frontiers Workshop. Early registration
is advised, as participation is limited to about 50 attendees. The registration
can be done electronically
and the deadline is April 8th, 2005. For accommodation reservation, please
visit the dedicated page.
For any further inquiries please contact the conference coordinator.
