Advanced Synchrotron Methods:
X-ray Absorption and Emission spectroscopy

October 2020
Lomonosov Moscow State University (LMSU)
Moscow, Russia

Dear Participants,
We regret to inform you that in the context of preventive actions with regards to the Coronavirus COVID-19, the XAS/XES School in Moscow has to be postponed. We consider the beginning of October for the school. A new date will be communicated to you in due course. Thank you for your understanding!
Kind regards,
Organizing Committee

Scope: X-ray spectroscopy is one of the demanded technique at the synchrotron light sources and XFELs. LMSU offers a 3 days training course in X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopy (XAS and XES) and related techniques, as high-energy-resolution fluorescence detection (HERFD), Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) and X-ray RAMAN/NIXS. The course will gather experienced scientists, active in the field of X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopy, who will share their expertise with MS/PhD students, post-docs and young scientists, interested in learning about the fundamental principles and applications of X-ray spectroscopy methods in their research. The school is also open to senior scientists.
