French and Swedish School on Energy Materials


This advanced school on X-rays and Neutrons techniques for the study of functional materials for energy is jointly organized by Swedish and French universities and research organisms.


Materials for the production, processing, storage or transportation of energy are essential components for current societal challenges. Knowledge of structural organization and dynamics at the atomic scale is therefore an essential prerequisite for the study of these materials, and is based, not exclusively but largely, on the use of short-wave radiation, neutrons or X-rays. Thus, an important aspect of the proposed school is to emphasize the complementarity between similar techniques based on one or the other of the radiations, too often ignored.


The pre-requisite level to fully benefit from the school is that of an M2 in physics, chemistry with mathematical bases necessary to understand the current formalism of physics. PhD students and post-doctoral researchers with phD in physics or chemistry with mathematical background are welcomed.
