HSC19. 19th HERCULES Specialized Course: Quantitative Imaging using X-rays and Neutrons

All events for this Day

Event Name

HSC19. 19th HERCULES Specialized Course: Quantitative Imaging using X-rays and Neutrons

Start Date 15th May 2017
End Date 19th May 2017

Imaging techniques have seen an intense development using neutron and synchrotron radiation over the past 20 years, with the development of brighter sources and efficient detectors. Newest developments in imaging techniques will be presented and discussed. Beyond the experimental aspects, the data analysis workflow is essential for an efficient and objective interpretation of experimental data.

This school will, thus, be an “image language course” in which experts and beginners are discussing the creation and use of images. With the help of “best practice” and “bad practice” examples fundamental aspects of image production and image operation shall be highlighted and discussed, from the definition of experimental parameters, the reconstruction algorithms, to data visualization.

The course will cover a wide range of experimental imaging techniques: two and three-dimensional imaging, time-resolved experiments, absorption, phase-contrast, scanning microscopy, coherent diffraction imaging and ptychography, etc…

The school will begin with two days of lectures covering major techniques and theoretical aspects of image processing, one poster session, one day of practicals on ESRF beamlines, one day of tutorials focusing on data analysis, and one day of lectures on more specialized topics.

NOTE: the school is primarily intended for young researchers (PhD students and postdocs), but more experienced researchers interested in the topic can also apply.
