Modern light sources and their applications - School in ELI ALPS

This 3 day school provides an introduction to modern x-ray sources including synchrotrons, x-ray free electron lasers, and laser driven x-ray sources (like ELI). Beside the tutorials about the sources, there will be application-oriented lectures outlining the impact of these sources on different areas of science including: biology, chemistry, physics, materials science, geosciences and industrial applications. The program is formed such that PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and also senior scientists could benefit from it. A site visit at the ELI ALPS Research Institute is included in the program.
