X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy - MRI Graduate Training
Date: 2 December 2015 Time: 12:00 - 14:00
MRI training afternoons are designed specifically for PhD students and post-docs, but more generally for anyone interested in learning about the topics. This event will be about Characterisation Techniques. There will be refreshments served at 2pm providing a chance to network with your colleagues.
An introduction to x-ray absorption spectroscopy will be provided together with an in-depth look into experimental methods, theoretical description and data analysis. Information content and capabilities of the technique in nanoscale, disordered/glassy systems and under extreme conditions of pressure and temperature will be considered.
