Our joint RS-APS & HGS-HIRe lecture weeks are crossdisciplinary events that cover experimental, theoretical and technical aspects of a particular research field together. This year, the scientific program aims to cover imaging techniques with particular emphasis on the broad range from the optical regime to the X-ray regime. The main idea is to address the following aspects and bring them together: On the one hand there are various techniques adapted for specific wavelength regimes, with different advantages and limitations. On the other hand there are image reconstruction algorithms that extract from the raw data the best possible spatial information of the sample.
