A Workshop on Understanding Condensed Matter Dynamics at the Microscopic Level was held at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory on June 23-24, 2008. It was organized by Yogi Gupta (WSU), Christian Mailhiot (DOE-NNSA), and Dennis Mills (APS).
The goal of the Workshop was to see how national facilities like the APS can be utilized to examine and understand the real time response of dynamically compressed materials at the microscopic level. It was a one and a half day workshop, consisting of invited talks and posters. Participants were from universities, national laboratories, and research institutes in the U.S. and abroad.
