Imaging of 3D-structures

Event Dates: 2017-02-27 to 2017-03-03   

Imaging of 3D-structures

– a non-specialized winter school on Imaging with Neutrons and with Synchrotron Radiation X-ray Imaging

When: February 27 – March 3, 2017,

Where: AF Borgen, Sandgatan 2, Lund, Sweden

Organizers: The research school “Imaging of 3D structures”

The new synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV and the coming Neutron facility ESS in Lund, will provide world-class

neutron and x-rays beam for a broad range of sciences. The research school “Imaging of 3D structures” covers X-ray

and neutron techniques to characterize 3D structures at all length scales, from protein structures to large materials

and objects.

The purpose of this winter school is to introduce PhD students and post docs, with background in any field of natural science, engineering or medicine, to 3D imaging techniques with neutrons and synchrotron radiation.

The program will provide young researchers from all disciplines understanding of the great potential of the two

future large-scale infrastructures in Lund – Max-IV and ESS – and how these infrastructures can be used to address their scientific questions.

PhD students, who actively attend the winter school, will be credited 4 ECTS points when they hand in a written exercise which will be given at the end of the school series.

Participation fee is 2000 SEK to cover banquet dinner, lunches and refreshments served in the breaks. (registration fee is waived for LU students and employees)

Please sign up by email at latest February 10, 2017 to  Registration is mandatory!
