LUCIA a 20 ans

June 20-21, 2024 Synchrotron SOLEIL
2003: Swiss Light Source, December 9th 2003, first beam delivered by LUCIA 2008: Synchrotron SOLEIL, July 22nd 2008, first beam re-delivered by LUCIA
2024: LUCIA is 20 years old!

LUCIA is the SOLEIL beamline dedicated to X-ray micro-absorption, µXANES & µEXAFS, and X-ray micro-fluorescence experiments in the "soft" X-ray range (0.5 - 8.5 keV). Thanks to its characteristics, the beamline is somehow singled out in the international community and has the ability to find applications in a wide range of scientific fields such as surface and materials sciences, chemistry, biology, geosciences and cultural heritage.


At the end of LUCIA's 20 years of operation, first at SLS and then at SOLEIL, this workshop, held on June 21st and 22nd 2024, will be an opportunity to bring together scientists from these different research fields, users of the beamline, to:

  • highlight some of the key scientific results,


and in terms of the science conducted on the beamline:

  •  review past and current developments (sample environment, monochromator, data acquisition, energy range, ultra-high vacuum chamber, operando chamber, …),
  •  look ahead to possible future developments (nano-focused station, new optical design, etc.) in connection with the machine upgrade.


We hope to see many of you at this event to share your past experiences and your desires for future experiments on LUCIA!
