Location
Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK

The aim of the workshop will be to teach new and nearly new users of the Diamond spectroscopy beamlines:

  • details on how to do an XAS experiment including a brief introduction to the XAS stations at Diamond, 
  • how to process and analyze XAS data starting from a starting from scratch level (this is the main part of the course).

The course will be delivered by Fred Mosselmans and Giannantonio Cibin and consist of a mixture of lectures and hands-on sessions designed to teach participants the basics of data processing and analysis using the latest version of Athena and Artemis called Demeter.

The hands on aspect will require access to a laptop, thus attendees are welcome to bring their own laptops though a number of Diamond laptops will be available for applicants who don't have access to one.

There is no fee for the course. Meals and accomodation in Ridgeway House, the on-site hostel, will be provided but applicants will have to pay for their transport to and from Diamond.

Registration is now closed but any queries about the course should be directed
