Greenbank Conference Park
Invited Talk Detectors for Synchrotron Radiation and Spillation Neutron Sources S9 : Detectors for Synchrotron Radiation and Spallation Neutron Sources


Prof. Heinz Graafsma (ESRF, France)


Detectors at synchrotron sources have always been a weak link, and continue to be so today. Although there has been considerable improvement in the detectors and the detector technologies used at storage rings, the development of the source brilliance has been even more significant, thereby widening the gap between the source and the detector performances. And short overview of the current situation will be given. Followed by a more detailed presentation of ongoing and upcoming detector developments. At the end an attempt will be made to give an analysis of what investments are needed to develop and construct significantly improved detectors.
