Fast X-ray timing and spectroscopy at extreme count rates - science with the HTRS on the International X-ray Observatory
Start date: 07 Feb 2011
Address: Chmapery, Switzerland
The International X-ray Observatory (IXO) is one of the three remaining Class-L projects in ESA's Cosmic Vision program. The High Time Resolution Spectrometer (HTRS) is one of the five proposed instruments, whose aim is to exploit to the fullest the enormous throughput of the IXO mirrors by permitting observations of extremely bright sources with very high efficiency.
In order to stimulate the community to maximize the science impact of the HTRS, we are organizing a scientific conference on the science with the HTRS in Champery in the Swiss Alps from February 7 until February 11, 2011.
