General information

With the upcoming facilities MAX-IV and ESS in Lund the overall goal of this course is to make students aware of the potential of these large-scale facilities on their own research. By following this course the students will:

- be introduced to scattering methods, including diffraction, pair distribution function (PDF) analysis, small angle scattering, X-ray absorption spectroscopy (EXAFS), inelastic neutron scattering, including examples from biological and soft matter, materials chemistry and physics
- develop an intuitive view of the application of these scattering methods to solve their own research questions
- have access to hands-on exercise, including proposal writing, data analysis and presentation of data
- participate on hands-on experiments at the DTU Imaging facility and at MAX-IV (the latter to be confirmed)
- have a tour of MAX-IV facility in Lund, Sweden.


Please note that the summer courses are non-residential. Participants are responsible for finding and funding accommodation during their stay in Copenhagen.
