LCLS-II will provide revolutionary opportunities for addressing Grand Challenge questions from the level of electrons and atoms to the long-range, mesoscopic to macroscopic properties that emerge. These opportunities arise from the unprecedented combination of high-repetition rate, photon energy range, short pulse duration and high coherence of LCLS-II.

The LCLS-II Materials Physics workshop aims to identify high-impact scientific questions that can be uniquely addressed with LCLS-II. Plenary presentations on the first day will address Grand Challenge topics in preparation for breakout sessions on the second day to discuss specific scientific and technical challenges.
