ATM – Nanoscale Distance Measurements in EPR and Fluorescence Spectroscopies (August 28-29, 2018)

Aims

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.

Contents

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.

Smart Molecules – Supramolecular Anions Chemistry (September 20-21)

Aims

This module provides an overview of some recent developments in the field of anion recognition and links it to topics in supramolecular chemistry, biomedical applications and nanochemistry. The doctoral researchers will gain insight into specific syntheses and modifications of anion receptors, their specific functions and their integration into functional materials with optimized catalytic activity and adjustable physical, magnetic, electronic, biological and optical properties.

Introduction to Calorimetry (June 27-28, 2018)

Aims

This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge or experience in calorimetry. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of calorimetry in general and the application to polymer science in special.

Contents

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 typical polymer samples and demonstrations of the different calorimeter devices during the afternoon. Continue reading “Introduction to Calorimetry (June 27-28, 2018)”
