7-11 May 2018, San Sebastián – Spain

Organized by: Materials Physics Center (CFM), joint center of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU)

The course is open to graduate students and researchers in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or Biology.

The laboratory course will consist of lectures and experimental sessions. The lectures will include an introduction to polarization theory, dielectric materials and instrumentation. Selected experiments on soft-matter and polymers will be conducted and analyzed by the participants. Furthermore, there will be an Invited Tutorial on a specific topic involving intensively dielectric relaxation experiments.
It is the aim of the course to introduce participants into the dielectric relaxation experimental techniques and its applications in soft-condensed matter research.

Registration now open


Introduction to Small and Wide Angle X-Ray Scattering (February 13-14, 2018)


This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge or experience in scattering theory and experiments. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts of applications of x-ray small angle and wide angle scattering in polymer science.


During the first day of the two-day program the necessary theoretical knowledge will be communicated in a series of lectures accompanied by discussions of  selected applications and problems. The program of the 2nd day will consist of hands-on experiments and demonstrations in the lab followed by a tutorial in which the acquired knowledge will used for the analysis of the measured data.
