It is the aim of the research courses - the first course started in 2001 - to provide young and future researchers with the fundamental knowledge about new methods of X-ray research, in order they can establish themselves in this field and can contribute to develop a wide area of scientific application of modern X-ray sources.
The courses address students in their final terms, diploma/master students, PhD students and young research fellows after the PhD.
The structure of the courses is such that the lectures shall provide fundamental information about the different facets of the topic of the corresponding course. Both, experimental techniques and scientific applications of these techniques shall be discussed. From the lecture the student shall be able to understand the basics, to estimate experimental observables and to deviate results and conclusions of experiments. The courses will be rather compact with only few lectures per day over typical three days.
