24th ETSF Workshop on Electronic Excitations: Light-Matter Interaction and Optical Spectroscopy from Infrared to X-Rays
16-20 September 2019
Deadline for abstract submission and bursary applications is approaching: June 7th, 2019
The ETSF Workshop series provides a forum for excited states and spectroscopy in condensed-matter physics, chemistry, nanoscience, materials science, and molecular physics attracting theoreticians, code developers, and experimentalists alike.
The 2019 edition aims at discussing the most recent advances in the theoretical description of light-matter interaction focusing on first-principles methods.
Topics covered by the workshop will include:
- Linear and non-linear optical spectroscopy
- Core-level spectroscopies
- Ultrafast excitation dynamics
- Electron-phonon coupling
- Light harvesting in natural and synthetic systems
2019 ILL Annual School on Neutron Diffraction Data Treatment using the FullProf Suite,
Institute Laue-Langevin, Grenoble (France
21 to 26 October 2019
FPSchool aims to contribute to the training of scientists in treatment of X-ray and neutron diffraction data.
The school is based on intensive hands-on sessions using the computer programs of the FullProf Suite. The lectures and tutorials will provide the essential tools necessary for an efficient use of the FullProf Suite at an intermediate level. In addition to general applications, Rietveld method, multipattern analysis, microstructure determination and refinement, Ionic conduction diffusion paths calculations, staking faults systems and magnetic structure determination will be given particular attention.
The school consist of 2 days dedicated to general applications plus 2.5 days dedicated to the analysis of different specialized problems on condensed matter science. The theoretical modules are focalized on different problems that will be complemented with different hands-on sessions for which each participant should bring his/her own laptop with the FullProf Suite already installed.
The school is intended for PhD students and experienced scientists with a basic knowledge of diffraction techniques and crystallography. As usual, among the participants there will be a mix of different levels of experience in using FullProf. It is recommended, to those who consider themselves as beginners, to read the FullProf manual in advance and even to follow a few of the online tutorials.
The maximum number of participants is limited to 30, which ensures the quality of the training provided. The selection of candidates is based on his/her motivation letter and CV (plus a recommendation letter from the thesis supervisor for PhD students). If necessary, balance between laboratories and nationalities will be taken into account. For information, about 1 out of 3 candidates is accepted.
