From the 29th of July to 1st of August 2019 the Institute for Crystallography and Structural Physics (ICSP) will host the 5th CENEM Summer School for X-ray Scattering. The school will provide a perfect opportunity to get a detailed insight into theory and practice of several modern scattering methods such as:

  • X-ray powder diffraction (XRD)
  • Small angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS)
  • Surface scattering using a grazing incident X-ray beam (GISAXS/GIXD), and X-ray reflectometry (XRR)
  • Pair distribution function(PDF) analysis

The program includes lessons about the basics of X-ray scattering and the methodological background of the diverse methods as well as data reduction and data evaluation. As a highlight an external guest (tba) will give a talk about experiments at large-scale facilities.
During hands-on trainings at our state-of-the-art laboratory instruments the participants will learn to apply X-ray scattering techniques by performing their own measurements on selected samples and by analyzing the experimental data.

The participants will have the opportunity to discuss the application of X-ray scattering in their own research. They are therefore requested to complement their application with a short abstract highlighting their research interests in the context of X-ray scattering.

Due to limitations of our capacity for the hands-on training sessions, only 16 researchers can be accepted. The summer school is mainly dedicated to doctoral candidates but is also open to Bachelor and Master degree students, postdoctoral researchers, and employees.

We expect the completely filled application form including the abstract to be sent to anne.pfnuer@fau.de not later than the application deadline 24th of May 2019.

Application deadline: May 24th 2019

Decision about participation: June 3rd 2019

Fee: 400 €; Members of EAM and FAU exempt from charge
