The goal of the Spring School is to enable students and young researchers to apply the entire tool box of advanced scattering methods to their topical research in order to provide them with otherwise unobtainable microscopic information. To this end, we will teach the basics of scattering, introduce the various radiation sources with the particular properties of the corresponding radiation, familiarize students with the appropriate methods and instruments and show how modern scattering methods can be applied to provide essential and unique contributions to help solve the grand challenges facing our modern societies such as energy supply, health, environment, transport and information technology.
The topics for this year's School are:
Structure, Dynamics & Excitations
Neutron- & Synchrotron Radiation Sources: X-FEL, ESS, HBS
Topical Applications in Soft Matter, Life Science, Materials Sciences, Quantum- and Nano-Material
Complementary Techniques: Imaging, Microscopies.
Students who have not yet finished their Master’s degree can apply for financial support from Forschungszentrum Jülich to cover part of the accommodation costs. To qualify for this support, valid proof of student status as well as a letter of reference from your supervisor must be supplied upon registration.
