About the School

This one month course, coordinated by the Université Grenoble Alpes, is designed to provide training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from European and non-European universities and laboratories, in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications). It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities and a poster session (each participant puts up a poster about her/his thesis or research topic for a day).

  • PART I: BASIC METHODS AND INSTRUMENTS :
    (This part is common for all the participants - 1.5 weeks)
  • PART II is divided into two parallel specialized sessions (3.5 weeks) :
    • Session A: PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY OF CONDENSED MATTER
    • Session B: BIOMOLECULAR STRUCTURE AND DYNAMICS

The course is held in Grenoble at the Polygone Scientifique Louis Néel. This is close to partner institutions where practicals and tutorials will take place:

  • European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)
  • European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF)
  • Institut de Biologie Structurale (IBS)
  • Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL)
  • Institut Nanosciences & Cryogénie (CEA)
  • Institut Néel (CNRS)

A special seven days programme is included , in a partner institution among European Large instruments, either at:

  • DESY and European XFEL in Hambourg, Germany [Canceled for the 2017 session, due to a scheduled shutdown of Petra III]
  • Elettra and FERMI in Triest, Italy
  • Swiss Light Source / Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland
  • SOLEIL (St Aubin, France) and Laboratoire Léon Brillouin (CEA Saclay, France)

The language of the course is English.
