The 3rd International Henry Moseley X-Ray Science Summer School will be held at Koç University, Istanbul between 23 June-3 July 2014.

 The summer school aims to train young researchers from both the academia and industry on the principles and interdisciplinary applications of x-ray science including:

  • X-ray diffraction, powder, texture and residual stress analysis
  • Protein and molecular crystallography
  • X-ray absorption and x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, trace elemental analysis
  • X-ray imaging and tomography
  • Nuclear resonance scattering
  • X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy
  • Ultrafast applications in the nano and femto regimes.

In addition to lectures, the students will be required to perform hands-on tasks, write a completion report and give a 10-minute presentation at the end of the course.  

Attendees with backgrounds in physics, chemistry, structural and functional biology, geology, mineralogy, materials science, mechanical engineering, earth and environmental sciences, botanics and medical sciences are welcome to apply. A maximum of 50 people (~25M / ~25F) will be attending the course.

The course fee of $200 will cover the accommodation in same sex student dormitories with shared facilities, 3 meals a day, the lecture materials and the boat trip.
