XAFS 2023 Short Course on XAFS, BNL

2023-November-1 - 2023-November-3

Application deadline: August 31, 2023 https://www.bnl.gov/xafscourse/

Every year Brookhaven National Laboratory offers a three-day training course to those interested in learning about the use of x-ray absorption spectroscopy methods. This year, the course will be offered on site November 1–3, 2023. It continues the annual tradition of gathering a group of scientists, active in the field, to share their expertise with those interested in learning about the use of x-ray spectroscopy methods in their research.

The course will be useful for those scientists interested in learning advanced XANES and EXAFS methods, including, tentatively, molecular dynamics EXAFS (MD-EXAFS), reverse Monte Carlo EXAFS (RMC-EXAFS), machine learning – assisted XANES and EXAFS (ML-XANES and ML-EXAFS), and data analysis and are interested in advanced modeling methods applicable for nanomaterials research.

During the last day of the workshop, as has been our tradition since the inception of Brookhaven XAFS short courses, the instructors will divide participants in groups for in-depth problem solving, data analysis and modeling, to best match participants and their research interests. There will be Q&A sessions on the subject of the lectures on the first and second days of the workshop. X-ray spectroscopy is one of the main techniques of the DOE light sources, and the course supports the DOE mission by educating new users in the applications of this technique.

Course participants will be limited and selected based on their application materials.

Wednesday, November 1 and Thursday, November 2 will be devoted to lectures and demonstrations of the software packages.
Friday, November 3 will be devoted to the practical session, in which participants will practice problem solving methods discussed in the previous days. Registered participants will have an option to analyze their own data, in addition to the projects chosen for training purpose.
