HZB Photon School 2024

We are happy to announce the HZB Photon School 2024. Lectures will take place on-line from 18th – 22nd of March and trainings will be conducted on-site (*) from 25th – 28th of March in the Wilhelm-Conrad-Röntgen-Campus, Berlin-Adlershof.

(*) Contingent on BESSY II is operating at a level that allows external users access.

The school is primarily aimed at master students and early stage researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, life or environmental sciences. Participants will be introduced to synchrotron and laboratory-based methods that probe the molecular structure, function and dynamics of complex material systems.

The two-week program consists of basic and specialized lectures given by experienced teachers who are HZB scientists or BESSY II super-users from our partner universities and research centers. The second week is dedicated to hands-on trainings at several BESSY II experimental stations and X-ray laboratories. Participants will get a vivid experience by joining an experiment to work in small groups. The second week’s activities will teach participants how to collect, analyze, interpret and present their own data amongst peers and specialists.

We kindly ask to apply on the school’s website

Deadline for application is the 10th of December 2023. We will notify the acceptance for participation by 19th of December. Travel support may be available upon request. Lectures will be held in English.
