The aim of this school is to familiarize the participants with the various data that can be acquired using state-of-the-art synchrotron diffraction tools, ranging from standard powder and single crystal diffraction to surface scattering (at grazing incidence angle) and in-situ or operando experiment


This five day school aimed at ETH and EPFL PhD students provides access to a state-of-the-art synchrotron beamline (BM01) where experts will give theoretical and practical insight into the use of advanced scattering and diffraction characterization techniques for materials research. The school will take place from May 13-17, 2024 at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France.
