Introduction to Rheology (October 10-11, 2017)

Aims

This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge or experience in rheological theory and experiments. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts of applications of rheology in polymer science.

Contents

During the first half 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 second half of the first day and 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.

NMR spectroscopy for biomolecular and materials characterization (September 6/7, 2017)

Aims

This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge in NMR spectroscopy. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of data/spectrum acquisition in pulsed NMR and the information content, and focuses on a few specific experimental techniques to study dynamics in polymer and biopolymer systems.

Contents

Each day of the two-day program starts with a series of lectures in the morning, followed by hands-on experiments on low-field NMR spectrometers, and demonstrations on high-field spectrometers, during the afternoon.
