Advanced Light Sources: Principles, Designs, Developments and Multidisciplinary Applications
|Start Date||20th Apr 2020|
|End Date||1st May 2020|
The proposal submitted by LAAAMP, ICTP, IAEA, ESRF and the University of Johannesburg has been funded by a joint IAEA/ICTP grant to host a student workshop at the Abdus Salam ICTP under the title “Advanced Light Sources: Principles, Designs, Developments and Multidisciplinary Applications”. The activity will take place from 20 April to 1 May 2020 in the Leonardo Building Budinich Lecture Hall in Trieste, Italy.
The Abdus Salam ICTP has allocated the following resources as its contribution towards the workshop’s budget:
Registrations are open at http://indico.ictp.it/event/9080. DEADLINE: 1 March 2020.
The School targets young scientists to introduce them to the exceptional research opportunities offered by synchrotron and free-electron-laser (FEL) facilities worldwide for exploring the properties of all types of matter.The school will provide an overview of the production and characteristics of synchrotron and free-electron-laser light, its interaction with matter and the numerous experimental methods enabled by these interactions that have become indispensable tools spanning over all domains of basic and applied research. The school lecturers will demonstrate the multidisciplinary applications and the most recent instrumental developments and science breakthroughs in the fields relevant to their expertise. The program will also include discussions of the lecturers with the students, talks describing the open access to these facilities based on the merits of the proposed project and possible industrial application. Demonstration sessions will be organized at the beamlines of Elettra’s synchrotron and FEL facilities.
A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.
