Recent years have seen dramatic successes in providing ‘atomic level views’ of important transient phenomena in materials, molecular and even biomolecular systems. These landmark studies were enabled by breakthroughs in high time-resolution x-ray and electron diffraction, crystallography, spectroscopy and imaging.
The future of this emerging field looks incredibly bright, with major advances in electron source intensity and coherence as well as the first round of experiments at the LCLS. Along with new methods to take advantage of these sources, we have new disruptive technologies that are driving this field. The Banff Meeting in Structural Dynamics was founded to provide the perfect forum to disseminate the latest spectacular developments in opening up new vistas with atomic clarity. The first three meetings held in 2010, 2012, and 2013 were a resounding success and will be continued to provide an opportunity to meet and discuss current problems and chart a course for further successes.
