09. August 2014 - 15. August 2014 PSI Summer School on Condensed Matter Research

Institut Montana, Zug, Switzerland


The PSI summer school 2014 is dedicated to the topic: Exploring time, energy and length scales in condensed matter. International experts and PSI staff members will introduce and deepen your knowledge not only about these scientific topics but also about the main methods applied at PSI large-scale facilities to understand the phenomena, which are presently at the forefront of modern solid state physics and chemistry.

Large-scale facilities such as neutron, muon and synchrotron sources offer a wide variety of techniques to reveal the secrets of condensed matter. Scattering, spectroscopy and imaging experiments enable to study a topic from different scientific points of view and to contribute to fundamental and applied research projects. In this school the focus is on the study of dynamic processes at different time and length scales looking at the electronic, magnetic and structural properties of condensed matter using the capabilities of the large-scale facilities. Evening lectures will draw the attention to the importance of time, energy and length scales in other scientific fields.

Following the school a practical training is offered at PSI. It will allow a limited number of participants to get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation using photons, neutrons, and muons.
