New Materials in New Light

Research Course

New light sources and experimental methods

  • High brilliance X-ray sources
  • Atomic structure determination using diffraction
  • Imaging mesoscopic structures
  • Dynamic processes in materials
Materials science applications in the areas of
  • Hard materials and magnetism
  • Nanomaterials
  • Disordered and soft materials

Free-electron lasers for short-wavelength radiation and the latest generation of storage rings for the generation of hard X-ray synchrotron radiation are new light sources providing extremely high brilliance radiation. These novel sources allow for new experimental techniques, therefore enabling new science to be investigated. The courses shall provide basic knowledge about new directions of X-ray research and address Diploma and PhD students and young research fellows. Detailed information about the program and how to apply can be found on the web.

The 7th course is dedicated to the investigation of the structure and the dynamics of materials using the properties of new, highly brilliant X-ray sources. State-of-the-art experimental techniques and key scientific applications will be discussed. The number of participants is limited. Applications for this course should be made not later than January 15, 2008.
