SAXS Workshop

  Small-angle X-ray and Neutron Scattering (SAXS/SANS) is an indispensable tool to reveal hierarchical structure from nanometer to sub-micrometer scale.
In this workshop, Professor Otto Glatter of the University of Graz, Austria, is invited as a special lecturer. He was awarded 2012 Guinier Prize for his dedicated development, application, propagation and dissemination of small-angle X-ray, light and neutron scattering methods over more than 40 years; for his pioneering work on the development of the indirect Fourier Transform method and its application to solve practical problems in real materials across many fields.
We will also invite other five speakers and discuss the novel discoveries in the field of softmatter using SAXS and SANS.
