EXAFS Data Collection and Analysis: An Introductory Practical Course in X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy

September 23-25, 2003

Four day practical course in crystallization and characterization of macromolecules.

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Purpose & Scope of Workshop:
This workshop provides a broad introduction to the collection and analysis of EXAFS data and is aimed at new synchrotron users and young scientists.

The three-day course includes classroom lectures given by leading experts, hands-on data collection at NSLS beamlines, and instruction in the use of data analysis software. The lectures will cover topics ranging from the basic physics of x-ray absorption, sample preparation and data collection, and basic priciples of data analysis. Participants will collect real data during the beamline practicals and learn to analyze that data during the computer training.

All housing will be be provided on-site at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Lunch and dinner will be provided each day as part of the registration fee.

This course is sponsored by the National Synchrotron Light Source.

We also thank Oxford-Danfysik and Canberra for financial assistance for this course.

Cost for the workshop: Students/Post Docs - $200, Industrial - $300
(Please note that $108 of the $200 registration fee is unallowable meal expense under DOE regulations)

Application deadline is August 21st.
