2013 PSI Summer School on Condensed Matter Research (12th edition)

Materials - structure and magnetism

August 17-23, 2013 (lectures)

Lyceum Alpinum, Zuoz, Switzerland


The PSI summer school 2013 is dedicated to some of the main topics addressed at large scale user facilities such as neutron and muon sources or synchrotron photon sources: Materials structure and magnetism. International experts and PSI staff members will introduce and deepen your knowledge not only about these scientific topics but also about the main methods applied to understand the phenomena, which are presently at the forefront of modern solid state physics and chemistry.

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.
