Understanding how matter creates life requires observing living cells with atomic detail. One possibility that has received significant attention in recent years is to observe the scattering of electrons on the molecules.
The goal of this workshop is to evaluate the requirements on the electron source for these experiments. We then want to assess whether novel methods to generate and to accelerate the electron beam can significantly advance this method beyond our present capabilities.
This workshop is organized by the divisions for biology as well as large research facilities of PSI, in collaboration with Advanced Accelerator Technologies.
