Ultrafast X-ray Summer School (UXSS2019)

Date Mo, 17.06.2019 - Fr, 21.06.2019
Location Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) at DESY , Hamburg, Germany
Program The Ultrafast X-Ray Summer School (UXSS) is an annual school on X-ray science aimed at PhD students and postdocs. The program of the school consists of nine lectures given by distinguished scientists in the field, a one-day visit to European XFEL with instrument presentations and tours, and guided hands-on project work in which the participants work out a mock proposal for beamtime at European XFEL.

The lectures cover the following topics:

- introduction to X-ray sources
- atomic and molecular physics
- condensed matter physics with X-rays
- theory of X-ray matter interaction
- structural biology
- matter in extreme conditions
- chemical dynamics
- coherent diffractive imaging
- inelastic X-ray scattering

We hope to see you in Hamburg in June!
