Emerging compact extreme-ultraviolet and x-ray sources small enough to be installed in laboratories, manufacturing facilities, and hospitals will revolutionize scientific disciplines complementing large scale synchrotron radiation sources. Applications span a wide range including biomedical, semiconductor manufacturing, fundamental and applied research, environmental engineering, defense and security, and industrial non-destructive testing.
At the recent OSA Compact EUV and X-Ray Light Sources Incubator Meeting, which was held in November 2013, both light source developers and end-users, including individuals from academia, government laboratories and institutions, and industry gathered to discuss and address the scientific grand challenges and the technical challenges of sources and peripherals. This follow-up two-day workshop on compact sources is to build upon the momentum and the enthusiasm created by the past OSA incubator meeting to gather both the compact light source developers, potential users, and others interested in this new field to present their work, exchange ideas, and to network with colleagues from with diverse needs and interests.
