Solid state chemistry – mesostructured materials: Juniorprofessor Dr. Mirijam Zobel

Print page


28th July - 10th August 2019

A report by two participants can be found on the blog of the University Bayreuth.

A brochure about the TS 2018 with a detailled program and contributions from all participants can be found here (PDF document).

The Travelling Seminar 2019 will take ca. 12 German and ca. 12 Russian students on a summer school on the topic of Nanomaterials and Large Scale Research Centers'. Together with 4 professors from Russia and Germany, we will travel to Moscow, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk and Lake Baikal by Transiberian Railway, plane and bus.

The content of the summer school is about

  • Physics and chemistry of nanomaterials, synthesis and characterization
  • X-ray-and neutron scattering.

The overall aim is to give an introduction and show the application of scattering methods (X-ray, neutrons, XRD, PDF, SAXS, SANS, TEM, XAS, many more) to the field of nanomaterials.

All accomodation and travel is covered: for Germans the round tour from the departure airport in Germany; for Russians from Irkutsk to the departure airport in Moscow. Details on this will be revealed upon the selection of participants.


In your applications, please include a CV as well as a motivation letter for participation (in English) accompanied by a prospective title of your talk.

Applications of German applicants should be directed to Prof. Mirjiam Zobel: mirijam.zobel[at]uni-bayreuth.de
