7th Summer School of the European Federation of EPR groups on Advanced EPR

Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, also known as electron-spin resonance (ESR) and electron magnetic resonance (EMR), allows detection of paramagnetic centers and their coupled magnetic nuclei on a time scale as short as nanoseconds and with spatial resolution from the atomic up to the nanometer scale. Recent two decades witnessed tremendous methodological and instrumental developments in EPR spectroscopy that led to scientific breakthroughs in many different fields of application.

The advanced EPR school is an initiative of the European Federation of EPR groups (EFEPR) to ensure the continuation of the successful development of EPR techniques and their applications. Lectures and tutorials by top researchers in the field provide close coupling between theoretical background and the experimental techniques. Methodological aspects are closely linked to different fields of application ranging from biophysics to material sciences. Graduate students and post-docs with some basic background in magnetic resonance are the main target group of the advanced EPR school (but not only).

The next (7th) school in this series is scheduled for August 24th till 31st 2015. It will be organized in Berlin, Germany by the member groups of the Berlin Joint EPR lab at the Free University Berlin and the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie.  All previous 6 schools were a great success and we have no doubts that the 7th one will follow this tradition.
