XAS Workshop November 2015

XAS Workshop November 2015

The aim of the workshop is to teach new and nearly new users of the Diamond spectroscopy beamlines how to do an XAS experiment including a brief introduction to the XAS stations at Diamond, and how to process and analyse XAS data from a "starting from scratch" level (this is the main part of the course).

Date
09/11/20152015-11-09 - 11/11/20152015-11-11
Location
Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK
Diamond Light Source will hold the 8th XAS analysis workshop in November 2015. The course will run from lunchtime on Monday 9th November until mid-afternoon on Wednesday 11th November.
 
The aim of the workshop is to teach new and nearly new users of the Diamond spectroscopy beamlines:
  • how to do an XAS experiment including a brief introduction to the XAS stations at Diamond, 
  • how to process and analyse XAS data  from a "starting from scratch" level (this is the main part of the course).
The course will be delivered by Diamond staff and consists of a mixture of lectures and workshop sessions designed to teach participants the basics of data processing and analysis using the latest PC versions of Athena and Artemis in the package Demeter.
 
The workshop aspect requires access to a laptop and attendees are requested to bring their own laptops, although a number of Diamond computers are available for applicants who didn't have access to one. The programs are freely available in Windows and Linux form. It is possible to get them to run on a Mac but this requires some expertise.
 
There is no fee for the course. Meals and accommodation in Ridgeway House, the on-site hostel, are provided but applicants will have to pay for their transport to and from Diamond.
 
Registration is now CLOSED
