Student job beamtime and data analysis
Be part of a beamtime and learn data analysis of synchrotron / neutron scattering data.
Within a student job or a thesis, you get the chance to be part of a small team to attend a beamtime and experience how experiments at large scale research facilites are conducted. You will be introduced to data analysis and a crucial, critically anatalytical discussion of experimental scattering data. The aim is that after some training you are able to analyze one or several data sets of a topic of one of the beamtimes.
- in October 2017 at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), Grenoble - PDF beamtime (pair distribution function)
- in October 2017 at the neutron reactor Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), Grenoble - SANS beamtime (small angle neutron scattering)
- in February / March 2018 at the ESRF, Grenoble - PDF beamtime
in March / April 2018 at Diamond, Oxford - PDF beamtime
Data sets of synchrotron and neutron scattering experiments require a sensible data analysis in order to observe structural changes in nanoparticles or at particle-solvent interfaces. In the upcoming beamtimes we are interested in the temporal evolution of ligand shells during CdS quantum dot formation, the crystallization of nanoparticles in a free jet and the understanding of how different particle propertes (size, shape, ligand coverage) influence nanoscopic solvation shells.
