3rd X-ray school cancelled due to Corona pandemic

in situ temperature-dependent diffraction

Update, 16.03.2020:

In Germany, the corona virus is spreading more and more. In this situation we are obliged to act responsibly and with foresight. Following the announcement of the Senate Chancellery on 11 March 2020, the HZB is cancelling all events and visitor groups until 20 July 2020. We ask for your understanding and will try to arrange an alternative date in the second half of this year.

We will let you know about any new developments as soon as possible.

Best wishes,
Michael Tovar, René Gunder&Susan Schorr


The HZB X-ray Corelab kindly offers the 3rd X-ray school for Master and PhD students at Lise-Meitner-Campus.

The aim of the course is to train participants in various X-ray diffraction methods that they can apply them in their current scientific project. The school will focus on phase analysis applying crystallographic databases, crystal structure analysis at ambient and non-ambient conditions. Thin film analysis like depth profiling, reflectivity, and texture will be introduced as well. For further details please have a look to the preliminary programme.

As an outcome from the first X-ray school we expanded the 3rd school to have more time for general introduction and hands-on experiments as well as for detailed evaluation and discussions. For effectiveness, the school will be offered in the way of modules. It will start with a mandatory general module. Afterwards the school will be split into a powder diffraction and a thin film analysis module which separately or both can be attended.

Looking forward to seeing you at our 3rd X-ray school,

Michael Tovar, René Gunder, Susan Schorr
