The LCLS has had a dramatic start up at its shortest wavelength (1.5 Å) reaching saturation on April 14, 2009 with 1.1 mJ per pulse energy. This is the baseline performance, but there is room for more. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the scientific opportunities that near term options for enhanced performance (wavelength reach, polarization, pulse duration, multiplexing options, etc.) will enable as well as the science drivers for the long term development of LCLS. It will be an opportunity for the broad scientific community to interact with the LCLS team and the FEL physicists to investigate what is wanted and where the science of LCLS might go. The format will allow for significant discussion amongst participants.
There is no registration fee for this workshop, but registration is required so that we can have a headcount of attendees. (Payment for meals will be collected on-site).
