|Title:||ALS Special Seminar: The Advanced Tomography Source: Join the Revolution!|
|When:||05/16/2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM|
Dula Parkinson, ESG/ALS
There is increased appetite for in-situ experiments on real-world systems as science tries to make a difference--LBNL's CC2.0 and Mesoscale initiatives are examples of this push. Useful experiments in these areas generally require measurements in 3 spatial dimensions. Tomography is one technique that can achieve this across a range of length scales. While only two ALS beamlines are dedicated to tomographic imaging (2.1 and 8.3.2), three others have demonstrated it as an option (5.3.2, 6.1.2, and 10.3.2), and two more beamlines are about to incorporate it (1.4.3 and COSMIC). Which beamline will be the next to join the 3D "revolution"? An overview of tomography will be given, along with a description of the different capabilities provided by the 7 ALS beamlines which offer the technique (~15% of the ALS). The common data movement, management, analysis, and visualization challenges faced by users of this technique will be described along with recent work that helps overcome these challenges, and proposals for future directions for some of these beamlines will be discussed.
