General Information

Venue: Storage Ring Auditory at LNLS 


The Short Course on X-ray Nanoprobe and Coherence at Synchotron Light Sources will be held at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, between March 21st and 24th, 2016.

The two-day Short Course on X-ray Coherence and Nanoprobe Techniques will deliver six hours of lectures on x-ray optics, nanoprobe and coherence techniques, covering from soft to hard x-rays beamlines. It is intended for an audience of PhD students, post-docs, engineers and scientists interested in the field of producing and using x-rays nanoprobes and coherence properties.

Dr. Ian McNulty is the leader of the X-ray Microscopy group at the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory, USA.

The two-day lectures will provide the basis for understanding coherence and nanofocusing properties of x-rays at third generation synchrotron light sources. Background in physic and, particularly, in x-ray optics and beamline instrumentation is desirable.

Registrations will be received from February 22th to March 14th 2016 through the application form available on this website and the selected applicants are not eligible to receive financial support. The number of attendees will be limited to 50 participants.
