X-ray absorption spectroscopy enables scientists to have a deep insight into materials and chemical compounds and characterize their atomic structure. For many disciplines, such as biology, environmental energy research, materials sciences, and archeology, this technology is indispensable. From August 23 to 28, more than 550 international researchers will meet at KIT to inform themselves about latest developments in this field and to exchange information.
