Introducing high-energy X-rays  for fundamental and applied materials science

Introducing high-energy X-rays for fundamental and applied materials science

Thursday, 11 November 2021 10:30 - 16:30

Clarion Hotel Malmö Live
Dag Hammarskjölds torg 2, 211 18 Malmö, (Google maps)

By providing a range of examples from ongoing research, the seminar aims to give researchers who are unfamiliar with using synchrotrons an insight into research possibilities – especially when using the PETRA III Swedish materials science beamline.

After the welcome and introduction, the seminar is organised into four sessions:

  1. Degradation of materials

  2. Characterisation on various length scales

  3. Industry needs

  4. Looking forward


10.00 • Coffee on arrival

16:30 • End of workshop

CeXS in brief

Sweden has a number of infrastructures that provide researchers with access to highly advanced, specialist facilities. Some facilities are supported by other countries. In Germany, a joint Swedish-German collaboration provides Swedish researchers with access to the PETRA III facility for experiments using ultra-high-energy X-rays.
