Satellite Meeting

15th symposium of Japanese Research Community on X-Ray Imaging Optics (XIO2019) will be held as a satellite meeting on 25-26 October, 2019 at Trust City Conference Sendai. The Japanese Research Community on X-Ray Imaging Optics was established to promote the research field of X-ray imaging optics in Japan and started a series of symposiums (the first in Tokyo, 1990). The 15th symposium will take a style of an international one to encourage extended discussion and collaborations. We aim to talk and discuss about the progress in the optical and/or metrological techniques in the spectrum range of EUV, soft X-rays, and hard X-rays (e.g., microscopes, telescopes, optical elements, light sources, lithography, detectors, other relevant techniques, and applications).
We encourage the participants of XNPIG2019 to join this meeting as well. For more details, please follow the XIO2019 website: http://mml.tagen.tohoku.ac.jp/xio2019/index.html.
