The Danscatt & MAX4ESSFUN Summer School on Materials Research with Synchrotron, Neutron, and XFEL Sources (2 ECTS) is created to educate young researchers in techniques and methodologies used at synchrotron, neutron, and XFEL sources. The school covers a wide range of scattering and absorption methods including diffraction, total scattering, imaging, and spectroscopy (see program below). Further, several beamlines/instruments are presented as part of the general perspective.

All students are expected to bring a poster on their related research, and to present it to other participants in "speed-science" sessions, in order to broaden the scope on what various techniques are used for.

The summer school is arranged by Aarhus University and jointly supported by DanScatt, MAX4ESSFUN (INTERREG, ESS & MAX4 Cross Border Science & Society) and Center for Materials Crystallography (AU).

Contact person on questions re Summer School and application:
Jacob Becker, Aarhus University (jbecker@chem.au.dk)


The workshop will be held at the Aarhus University Conference Center:
Sandbjerg Estate
Sandbjergvej 102
DK-6400 Sønderborg


For convenience, free-of-charge bus transport to/from Sandbjerg will be arranged:

(1) From Copenhagen
      (via Odense)

(2) From Aarhus
