August 13, 2019

The course is arranged by SLU in collaboration with the Balder beamline at MAX IV. It is open for Ph.D. students and scientists who would like to learn more about the EXAFS method. After the course, you will be able to plan an experiment, write an application for beamtime using EXAFS, and have the knowledge required to analyze your data. You will also get 4 hp for completing the course.

Location

MAX IV, Lund (September 25-26, 2019) and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU, Uppsala (September 28-October 4, 2019)
