MOOC: Synchrotrons and X-Ray Free Electron Lasers

© 2018 EPFL

© 2018 EPFL

An extensive introduction to synchrotron and X-Ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) facilities and associated techniques.

Are you interested in investigating materials and their properties with unsurpassed accuracy and fidelity? Synchrotrons and XFELs (X-ray free-electron lasers) are considered to be Science’s premier microscopic tools. They're used in scientific disciplines as diverse as molecular biology, environmental science, cultural heritage, catalytical chemistry, and studies of the electronic properties of novel materials - to name but a few examples. 

This course provides valuable insights into this broad spectrum of scientific disciplines, from the generation of x-rays - via a description of the machines that produce intense x-ray sources - to modern experiments performed using these facilities.

MOOC starts on 5 March 2018. Register now!
