50th IFF Spring School 2019 at Forschungszentrum Juelich "Scattering! Soft, Functional and Quantum Materials"


We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the

50th IFF Spring School 2019
"Scattering! Soft, Functional and Quantum Materials"

taking place in the Auditorium of Building 04.7 (Central Library) from 11
until 22 March 2019 at Forschungszentrum Juelich, Germany.

The IFF Spring School 2019 will provide a solid introduction into scattering
methods for the investigation of condensed matter and biomaterials. Advanced
methods at novel large scale facilities like the x-ray free electron laser
XFEL or the MW spallation sources will be highlighted. The power of modern
scattering techniques will be demonstrated by examples for topical research
in various fields - from Quantum Materials through Functional Materials to
Soft Matter and Life Sciences. Finally, complementary techniques such as
electron spectroscopy, modern electron microscopy etc. will be presented.

The School is open for students and young researchers who have a basic
knowledge of quantum mechanics and physics or chemistry of condensed matter.
It comprises around 50 hours of lectures plus discussions and will be held
in English; an Evening Lecture will be given by Prof. Metin Tolan. For
further information on the School and how to apply, please visit our website

If you would like to just attend some of the lectures or if you would only like to
receive a hardcopy of the printed lecture notes, you do not have to
register; just send a short email message to springschool@fz-juelich.de. If,
however, you wish to attend more than 75 % of the lectures, you are very
welcome to register with in order to guarantee your seat in the lecture
hall. The deadline for applications is 10 January 2019.
