Welcome to the satellite workshop "Local 3D atomic and electronic structure imaging of functionally active sites" of the VUVX2016 conference!

Core-level and valence band holographic imaging techniques have been extensively developed owing to constructions of new light sources and developments of high performance detectors. This workshop will focus on new science opened by such new analysis methods. Keynote lectures by the Maestri of photoelectron and x-ray fluorescent diffraction as well as X-ray standing wave techniques, and various cutting-edge presentations by invited researchers will be arranged. A poster session is planned.

See you at University of Zurich!
