INVITATION: SEMINAR ON SYNCHROTRON RADIATION

Thursday 13 June 2019 at 12:15-13:00 Physicum E204

Veijo Honkimäki, ESRF – The European Synchrotron, Grenoble, France: Extremely brilliant source – ESRF

The ESRF – the European Synchrotron, located in Grenoble, France – is the world’s most intense X-ray source for scientific research. Founded in 1988, the ESRF is funded by 22 partner countries. Each year, 10,000 scientists from all over the world come to the ESRF to probe the structure of matter in all fields of research, ranging from the chemistry and physics of materials to archaeology and cultural heritage, together with structural biology applications, environmental sciences and information science and nanotechnologies.

 

At a moment the lattice of the storage ring is under upgrade to deliver the world’s first high-energy fourth-generation synchrotron light source, open to users in 2020. The new storage ring, together with the most advanced portfolio of new beamlines, instrumentation and data management tools, will increase X-ray performances 100 times compared to present day synchrotrons. ESRF will provide new tools for the investigation of materials and living matter from the macroscopic world down to the nanometre scale and even down to the single atom, sparking new research opportunities in fields such as health and medicines, energy and the environment, cultural heritage and palaeontology and the development of new sustainable materials.

Welcome!

Magnus Ehrnrooth Foundation

Post doc scholarships

Persons who recently have obtained their PhD may apply for a postdoctoral scholarship. The purpose of a postdoctoral scholarship is to enable the grantee to further develop as a researcher. Applicants for a postdoctoral scholarship may also apply for support for research related costs and travel. A separate application for these purposes must be made.

Graduate student scholarships

The graduate student stipend can be awarded for a period of one year or a half year, preferably for the period 1.7. – 31.12. to a student who has been accepted by the university as a doctoral student. The stipend can be awarded conditionally to a student about to graduate.
