Participants should already be familiar with both the fundamentals of crystallography and X-ray powder diffraction. The school is otherwise aimed at scientists from the very early to mature career levels, from master and PhD students to senior scientists, who need or plan or want to explore the possibilities of materials analysis by synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction.
THE COURSE IS NOW FULL. PLEASE CONTACT CAREY SARGENT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST.
Students who attend all classes and present a poster on the final day of the Summer School may be eligible for two ECTS credits from their universities. Please contact Carey Sargent for more information.
