X-TECHLAB WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT
We are pleased to announce that the 1st training session of the year 2020, in “Crystallography & X-Ray Diffraction Techniques” and “Tomography & Mathematical Engineering”, will be held from 18 – 29 May 2020 at Agence de Développement de Sèmè City – Cotonou, Benin Republic.
The workshop will cover all aspects:
1. of single crystal structure determination by X-ray crystallography, including the fundamental concepts such as:
- fundamentals of x-ray crystallography
- crystal symmetry
- crystal diffraction: theory and experiment
- crystal growth techniques
2. of “tomography & mathematical engineering”
- Genesis of an X-ray Tomography application
- Image correlation applied to solids mechanics
Participants will have the opportunity to collect data from their own crystals using D8 QUEST BRUKER.
This workshop is most suitable for Master Degree students, PhD students and Postdocs. This training session will be entirely taught in English.
The crystallography session will focus on single crystal structure determination and participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own samples.
Participants from all countries will be considered. However, qualified applicants from African universities will be preferred. Online applications are open until 27 March, 2020. A total of 20 participants will be selected by training area. The selection results will be announced by 30 March, 2020.
