Welcome address

We are pleased to host the International Conference on X-ray Optics and Applications (XOPT2024) as part of the Optics and Photonics International Congress 2024 (OPIC2024) in Yokohama, Japan.

X-rays have played a vital role in a number of breakthrough scientific discoveries in recent years. Continuous innovations in X-ray optics, methodologies, and beamline instruments have laid the foundation for these achievements. For this conference, we are inviting leading experts in these fields from around the world to share the latest status of X-ray technology and developments and to discuss their plans for the future. One important topic we would like to discuss is how state-of-the-art X-ray optics can contribute to exploring the potential of the DLSR (Diffraction-Limited Synchrotron Radiation) sources that are currently emerging.

As a part of OPIC2024 on April 23-25, 2024, participants in XOPT2024 will have a full access to all the other concurrent conferences, events and exhibition (OPIE2024). See http://opicon.jp/ for details.

We are happy to welcome you to participate in and enjoy the conference.
