School on Synchrotron Light Sources and their Applications
|Start Date||6th Dec 2021|
|End Date||17th Dec 2021|
The School will introduce young scientists to the design, operation, and research opportunities offered at a modern synchrotron light source and how such sources are realized.
The school is co-sponsored by: IAEA, SESAME, LAAAMP, AfLS, ESRF
The school will be held over two weeks and will consist of three modules:
(1) the physical aspects concerning the design and function of the main components: accelerators, insertion devices and beamline optics;
(2) an overview of the arguments that can be made in order to fund and build a synchrotron light source, including socioeconomic benefit, stakeholder engagement, communication;
(3) an overview of common synchrotron light techniques including synchrotron infrared techniques and XANES/EXAFS.
