International Summer School 2020

Introduction to Novel Methods of Atomic and Electronic Structure Studies at High Pressures

This school aims at providing an introduction to novel methods of atomic and electronic structure studies at high pressures in a diamond anvil cell to early career stage scientists (master and PhD students, post-docs) and scientists working in the field of high pressure research. The focus will be set on new developments in:

  • High-pressure single crystal X-ray diffraction (SC-XRD) from polycrystalline samples
  • High-pressure solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).

The recent advancements in the both techniques drastically extended their applications, previously mostly limited to tens of GPa, to multimegabar pressures and temperatures of thousands of degrees. An overview of the necessary fundamental theoretical and methodological principals, including diamond anvil cell preparation and strategy of experiments, will be covered through lectures accompanied by multiple demonstrations, hands-on sessions, and step-by-step tutorials. At the end of the school, participants are expected to be able to perform basic high pressure SC-XRD and NMR experiments, as well as data processing and interpretation. The school is supported by the IUCr Commission on High Pressure (CHP) and the German Society for Crystallography (DGK).

The maximum number of participants is 20. Selection of participants will be done based on consideration of applications  and on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
