This book collects several contributions presented at the 2019 meeting of the Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society (SILS), held in Camerino, Italy, from 9 to 11 September 2019.
Topics included are recent developments in synchrotron radiation facilities and instrumentation, novel methods for data analysis, applications in the fields of materials physics and chemistry, Earth and environmental science, coherence in x-ray experiments. The book is intended for advanced students and researchers interested in synchrotron-based techniques and their application in diverse fields.
Andrea Di Cicco is presently full professor at the University of Camerino, Italy. He is co-author of an advanced data-analysis method (GnXAS) for x-ray absorption spectroscopy based on multiple-scattering calculations, and was involved in the development of the XAFS and TIMEX beamlines at the Elettra synchrotron and Fermi free electron laser facilities in Italy. His scientific activity spans several decades and was mainly devoted to structural studies of disordered and ill-ordered systems under non-standard thermodynamic conditions.
Gabriele Giuli is presently associate professor at the University of Camerino. His research interests include the characterization of dopants local structural/chemical environment (mostly transition elements and REE) in crystalline and glassy materials of interest in Earth Sciences and Material Science by combining x-ray absorption spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction techniques.
Angela Trapananti is presently a researcher at the Physics Division, School of Science and Technology of the University of Camerino, Italy. After a Ph.D. thesis in experimental condensed matter physics, she worked as post-doctoral fellow and then researcher of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) and different x-ray absorption spectroscopy beamlines of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. Her research interests include the structure of liquids and glasses, even at extreme conditions and the structural characterization of materials for energy storage applications, mainly by XAS. She was co-Chair of the 2019 SILS meeting.
