The ICXRL 2020 is Postponed

Due to the Pandemic Emergency the Conference is Postponed
The X-Ray Laser Conference: From Tabletop to Beamlines
The ICXRL was estabilishted to promote advanced extreme UV and X-ray sources, and their application in physics, chemistry, and materials. Joining ICXRL means full-board experiencing the latest trends, and shaping the future progress.

The Premier Convention for the Growing X-ray Laser Community.
