Overview

This intensive workshop is within the COST Action CA17120 ‘Chemobrionics’ and is open to PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career investigators from COST full and cooperating members, and from near neighbour countries of the European Union.

This training school has an interdisciplinary nature since the characterization of solids is interesting for many natural sciences: for geology — for experts in the Earth and in other planets — physics, chemistry and biology. The characterization of the structure and microstructure of solids is critical for knowing the formation mechanisms of these solids in processes related with, for example, crystallization, crystal growth, biomineralization and biogeochemistry. The participants will acquire knowledge of instrumental techniques applied to the characterization of solids at multiple scales. The school will offer classes on the fundamentals of these techniques along with demonstrations and practical sessions with expert lecturers in the Scientific Instrumentation Centre of the University of Granada, and a seminar room with computers. Participants may bring their own samples to analyse them in our installations during the practical sessions.
