Netherlands, Groningen

Theory and practice in Spectroscopy and Electrochemistry

when 9 July 2016 - 16 July 2016
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 400

The summer school will build on the 2015 Summer School, and will focus on:
• DFT and LF-DFT methods - including ADF, Gaussian and ORCA (Prof Marcel Swart, Dr Remco Havenith, Prof Maja Gruden, Dr Edwin Otten)
• Electrochemistry - including cyclic voltammetry and spectroelectrochemistry (Prof Wesley Browne)
• Multidimensional NMR spectroscopy (Prof Ricardo Louro)
• Mössbauer spectroscopy (Prof Eckhard Bill)
• EPR spectroscopy (Dr Maylis Orio, Prof Carole Duboc)

In all areas both theoretical and hands-on practical training will be provided. The school is aimed at PhD students but is open to Postdocs and research Masters students if places are available. The language is English and the practicals will be divided between novice and advanced groups within each subject. Practical sessions will involve hands-on laboratory exercises at beginner and advanced levels rather than demonstrations (with the exception of Mössbauer spectroscopy).
