NSLS EXAFS Data Collection and Analysis Workshop, September 2002

This was the first in what has become an annual short course.


The three-day course included classroom lectures given by leading experts, hands-on data collection at NSLS beamlines, and instruction in the use of data analysis software. The lectures covered topics ranging from the basic physics of x-ray absorption, sample preparation and data collection, and basic priciples of data analysis. Participants collected real data during the beamline practicals and learned to analyze that data during the computer training. Housing was provided on-site at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Lunch and dinner was provided each day as part of the registration fee. This course was sponsored by the National Synchrotron Light Source, with financial assistance from Oxford-Danfysik and Canberra. And everyone had a good time.
