                                          Grand Challenges with Next Generation Photon Sources

                                      ―Photon Workshop‖ October 27- 28, 2008
                       Wolfgang Eberhardt (BESSY) and Franz Himpsel (U Wisconsin), Co-Chairs
                                                Workshop Charge

 This workshop will identify connections between major new research opportunities and the capabilities of the next generation of
  light sources (―photon attributes‖, such as coherence and femtosecond time resolution). Particular emphasis will be on
  energy-related research. The presentations and discussion sessions will highlight how time-resolved excitation,
  functional imaging, diffraction, and spectroscopy by photons can help solving major problems and develop ―killer
  applications‖ in basic energy research. A variety of opportunities have been outlined by ten BESAC and BES reports on
  basic research needs and by a report on five ―Grand Challenges‖ in directing matter and energy (see: ).
 Both accelerator-based light sources and novel laser based sources for the VUV to X-ray range will be considered. The
  Photon Workshop will identify the science drivers for new photon sources but will not consider the design of machines or devices
  for producing the required photons. A strong coupling of theory and experiment will be emphasized.
 A matrix will be prepared to define the most compelling connections between research opportunities and photon
  attributes. For example, many science and energy grand challenges require probing very fast processes that happen over very
  small distances: femtoseconds over nanometers. Typically, an electron in a solid takes a femtosecond to travel a
  nanometer, and atoms have a vibrational period of about 100 femtoseconds. Lasers probe femtoseconds and synchrotrons
  resolve nanometers, but presently neither can do both.
 The photon attributes to be considered by the workshop include coherence length (longitudinal and transverse), time
  structure, energy, energy resolution, spectral brightness (average and peak), flux, spatial and momentum resolution, and

                                           BES FY 2010 Budget Highlights
The FY 2010 BES Budget Request supports President Obama’s goals for a clean energy
economy, investments in science and technology—including exploratory and high-risk
research, and training the next generation of scientists and engineers.
  Two Energy Innovation Hubs are initiated in FY 2010 in the topical areas of Fuels from Sunlight, and Batteries and
   Energy Storage. Each hub will assemble a multidisciplinary team to address the basic science, technology, economic,
   and policy issues needed to achieve a secure and sustainable energy future.
  Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs) initiated in FY 2009 continue in FY 2010. EFRCs integrate the talents
   and expertise of leading scientists across multiple disciplines to conduct fundamental research to establish the
   scientific foundation for breakthrough energy technologies.
  Core research—primarily supporting single principal investigator and small group projects—will be continued and
   expanded to initiate promising new activities that respond to the five grand challenges identified in the BESAC Grand
   Challenges report: quantum control of electrons in atoms, molecules, and materials; basic architecture of matter,
   directed assemblies, structure, and properties; emergence of collective phenomena; energy and information on the
   nanoscale; and matter far beyond equilibrium.
  The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the world’s first hard x-ray
   coherent light source, begins operations in FY 2010. The LCLS provides laser-like x-ray radiation that is 10 billion
   times more intense than any existing coherent x-ray light source and will open new realms of exploration in the
   chemical, material, and biological sciences.
  The National Synchrotron Light Source II at Brookhaven National Laboratory will continue its construction phase,
   including the largest component of the project—the building that will house the accelerator ring.
  Scientific User Facility Operations are fully funded in FY 2010. The BES user facilities are visited by more than
   10,000 scientists and engineers from academia, national laboratories, and industry annually and provide unique
   capabilities to the scientific community that are critical to maintaining U.S. leadership in the physical sciences.    20

                                             Award in Project Management

                                                          Center for Functional Nanomaterials
                                                          (Brookhaven National Laboratory)

The Center for Functional Nanomaterials is a state-of-the-art 94,500 gross square feet
laboratory and office building designed to serve as the key focal point for
nanoscience research in the Northeast. The objective of this project is to provide
clean and stable laboratories with an initial suite of world-class instruments to focus
on the study and fabrication of nanoscale materials. The Center is a user facility
sponsored by the Office of Basic Energy Sciences. It facilitates major new directions
in nanomaterials and greatly expands the capabilities available to a national user
base including scientists from government, academia, and industry. In addition, it
serves to train the next generation of scientists using the latest tools in the forefront
of science.
