Hercules Regional School at SOLARIS
On Friday, November 9, 2018, the first, five-day synchrotron school co-organized by SOLARIS ended. The HERCULES school was co-organized in cooperation with the Université Grenoble Alpes and ESRF synchrotron, and financed by the European Union.
Lectures for Polish, Czech and Slovakian participants of the school were delivered by scientists from all over the Europe. Students took part in workshops as well. The workshops were hosted not only by SOLARIS but also by Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University, the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the AGH Academic Centre for Materials and Nanotechnology, and the Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Lectures and practicals covered mainly techniques available in the synchrotron facilities, including spectroscopy and absorption, powder diffraction, imaging techniques, ARPES and XPEEM. During a poster session young scientists presented their scientific achievements.
We hope that we will soon meet the participants at SOLARIS beamlines where they will be performing their experiments.
Hercules Regional School was co-financed by the European Union.
