AlienS: School for advanced material characterization, 14-18 October 2019

AlienS: School for advanced material characterization, 14-18 October 2019

PAC-G organizes in cooperation with the INSTN/CEA-Grenoble and The Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nano-analysis (DFCNA) the one-week advanced training course AlienS, focused on advanced material characterization. The goal is the launch of an European school on materials characterization targeting industrial needs and covering most of the energy, health and information technology application fields.

AlienS, school for advanced material characterization, consists in five days of training between 14-18 October 2019. Supplementary lectures from the large facilities and research centres will be offered with a comprehensive overview of techniques for material characterization.
The event offers a unique look at the characterization landscape in Europe, with a special focus on energy, health and information technology. In Grenoble and Dresden the training group is limited to a maximum of 12 persons.

AlienS training OBJECTIVES
  • Acquire a general overview of nanoscale characterization techniques and related roadmap;
  • Focus on methodology for the study of surfaces, interfaces, nanomaterials and nanostructures;
  • Identify the potential and limitations of various techniques;
  • Practicals based on the general overview and on the topics focus through case studies.

Professionals, engineers, researchers from industry, facing material characterization issues.
