The workshop is open to all Ph.D and Post-Doc researchers who are interested in nanostructure investigation using (Ultra-small, Small-and Wide-Angle) X-ray Scattering techniques. In a highly interactive format, it will become clear to the participants how X-ray scattering may benefit their own research projects.
The workshop will be run free of charge, and can be joined as part of two different tiers:
|Topic||Proof-of-principle tier||Casual tier|
|Learn the fundamentals and applications of USAXS/SAXS/WAXS||Yes||Yes|
|Practice making practical considerations for measurements||Yes||Yes|
|Have your own samples measured in the MOUSE (BAM’s state-of-the-art lab instrument)||Yes||No|
|Learn to process data according to standardized, comprehensive methods (using DAWN)||Yes||No|
|Practice different SAXS data analysis methods (McSAS, SASfit, SasView)||Your sample data||On example data|
|Discuss your questions, results and interpretations with world-renowned specialists||Unlimited||As supplies last|
How to apply?
Candidates can send a short e-mail to email@example.com indicating their interest in either a) the “Proof-of-principle” tier, where we measure a few of your samples, or b) the “Casual” tier. A short proposal form will be sent to you, where you can briefly describe your research and samples (POP tier only). Please note that the registration deadline for the “Proof-of-principle” tier is the 2nd of October. A selection of attendees will be made for the workshop if required.
The number of (ideally solid or powder-)samples is not limited, but the samples need to arrive at least 6 weeks before the start of the workshop (i.e. by 18/10/2021). Data collection time will be split between participants equally in the 6 weeks running up to the workshop, however, extra data can be collected after the workshop if it benefits the investigation. We would suggest sending a small series of samples (e.g. time series, reagent series) so that you can see how changing different parameters can affect the nanostructure of your materials.
