2012 PSI Summer School on Condensed Matter Research

Imaging Life and Matter -

using photons, neutrons and muons

August 11-17, 2012 (lectures)

Institut Montana, Zugerberg/Zug, Switzerland


The PSI summer school 2012 is dedicated to the fascinating and growing field of imaging experiments at large scale facilities. International experts and PSI staff members will introduce and deepen your knowledge about real space imaging from life to materials sciences. Not only methods like tomography, phase contrast imaging or image processing but also diffractive and spectroscopic imaging and reflectometry will be covered.

Evening lectures will draw the attention to applications of imaging techniques in further high-impact fields of science like medicine, cultural heritage or astronomy.

Following the school a practical training is offered at PSI. It will allow a limited number of participants to get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation using photons, neutrons, and muons.
