This module is suitable for doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields. Some background in quantum mechanics is advisable but no direct prerequisite. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of electron paramagnetic resonance and fluorescence in general and especially emphasises the EPR and fluorescence methods for measuring distances on the nanometer scale.
Each day of the two-day program starts with a series of lectures in the morning covering the theoretical knowledge by basic lectures and the discussion of applications and problems. It is followed by hands-on experiments on instructive examples during the afternoon.

Our alumni meeting 2018 will take place on August 24, 2018.
We will meet at:
Villa Tillmanns (Research Academy Leipzig),
The meeting will take place from 5-11 p.m.
Comfortable train connections between Halle and Leipzig are available every 30 minutes at station Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz.
Our alumni meeting aims at the establishment of links and to foster the exchange between former and current iRTG members. Former members will talk on their career steps in industry or academia.
