Synchrotron Charge Density School

09 Mar 2013 - 15 Mar 2013 - Chicago, IL, USA

Bookmark and Share

The aim of the school is to provide young researchers with a hands-on experience enabling them to utilize new crystallographic instruments and techniques, especially the combination of X-ray and neutron diffraction, to investigate the structure of matter at the atomic level. The school will provide an opportunity to integrate the relationship between experiment and theory when addressing real world problems of chemical, biological and technical importance. The end result will be to ensure the next generation of researchers develop an awareness of dynamic, cutting edge experimental techniques.

Participants are invited to submit a beam time proposal and four proposals will be selected to carry out hands-on data collection and analysis during the workshop. Both new and experienced users of the APS are invited to attend.
