SR School 2010

Sep 20. till Sep 24.

SR School 2010

The aim of the school is to provide postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers, who have little experience of SR, a broad-based introduction to many of the different types of experiments conducted using SR.

Expressions of interest for this event are now closed.

Diamond is pleased to announce it will run a second synchrotron radiation school in September 2010. We held a very successful school in 2009 and this year's version is slightly expanded. The aim of the school is to provide postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers, who have little experience of SR, a broad-based introduction to many of the different types of experiments conducted using SR. This includes hands-on practical experience of performing an experiment on several of the Diamond beamlines. The participating beamlines are I06, I07, I11, I12, I15, I16, I18, B18, I19 and I22, and students will have the chance to work on up to 4 of them.

The school will be co-located at Diamond and Jesus College, Oxford, with participants staying in Oxford.

The format of the school will be 2 days of lectures on SR methods, 2 days of experiments on the Diamond beamlines and on the final day a symposium with 5 leading Synchrotron practitioners talking about some of their research. The school has no registration fee and accommodation and meals will be provided throughout the week. 

The closing date was 30th April 2010. Applicants have been notified. Attendees are expected to attend for the whole course.
