Summer School »Characterization of micro- and nano-materials« 2024

The Summer School 2024 on »Characterization of micro- and nano-materials« will be held at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg from September 11th to 15th, 2023. This year, the key aspect will be »Heterogeneous Catalysis: Fundamentals, Materials, and Applications«.

The scope of the Summer School comprises modern topics in materials synthesis, experimental characterization, and application. Particular emphasis will be put on state-of-the-art advanced methods for materials characterization.

Within the five-day program you will be able to gain and exchange knowledge based on introductory tutorials and specific talks rendered by renowned scientists and specialists in their various fields. Complementing the lectures within the first 3 days, in practical training sessions in the last two days, selected experimental methods and techniques may be seen and experienced »live and in action«.
