NESY Winterschool 2024

NESY Winterschool 2024

Hosted in the picturesque town of Bad Aussee, the 12th NESY Winterschool took place from 25th of February to 1st of March, 2024, after being on Covid-related hiatus since 2019.  Organized by Dr. Lechner from the Chair of Physics at MUL, it presented a valuable opportunity to expand knowledge about the usage of synchrotron and neutron radiation sources, and to exchange insights with the Austrian user communities.

Keynote lectures by internationally acclaimed scientists like C. Detlefs (ESRF, Grenoble), T. Grüne (Univ. Vienna), T.C. Hansen (ILL, Grenoble), R. Treusch (FLASH, DESY Hamburg) and H.-G. Steinrück (FZ Jülich) were the highlights of the symposium, while tutorials by experienced users from local universities and contributed talks by participants of the school made for a comprehensive program.

In the afternoons, some free time was allocated to leisure activities, which was used by participants for skiing, exploring the town or socializing around the pool billiard table.

Our group attended with M. Zubair Khan and Simon Leitner, who each presented a poster at the session taking place in the evenings.

We want to thank Rainer Lechner and Nadine Aichberger for organizing such a successful winter school, and giving so many young scientists the opportunity to enter deeper into the reciprocal space opened up by scattering methods.

Flatlands '23

Flatlands beyond Graphene was held in Prague , Czeech Republic  25-29 September 2023 , and has successfully established a platform for scientists to engage into fruitful discussions and exchange the latest discoveries in two-dimensional materials beyond graphene. This includes advances in synthesis, characterization and theoretical modeling, and the applications in electronics, energy storage, catalysis and optoelectronics.
2D_Mat_Lab contributed with with talks of Dr. Aleksandar Matkovic , Dr Gennadiy Murastov, Awais Aslam and Zubair Khan, presenting topics curretly developed in our group.
