Mini Synchrotron School for students in physical sciences...
Do you have a research student who is likely to use Diamond? Or are you a research student who will use Diamond as part of your work? If the answer is yes, Diamond Light Source is planning a four-day Synchrotron Radiation school for research students in the Physical Sciences, who expect to carry out experiments at Diamond as a major part of their studies. The school aims to provide an introduction to some of the important synchrotron based techniques available at Diamond. Students will attend a series of introductory lectures and tutorials during the first two days, before being given an opportunity to gain 'hands-on' experience of several Diamond beamlines, including powder diffraction, small molecule crystallography, microfocus spectroscopy and magnetic scattering. It is expected that the course will give research students a good foundation in their own area as well as an appreciation of some of the other major techniques.
Places for this course are limited. Only applicants who have submitted all the information requested will be considered.
Registration for this event is now closed.
