Courses on Synchrotrons and Beam Physics

The following is an incomplete listing of course available for synchrotrons and beam physics.

Synchrotrons and X-Ray Free Electron Lasers

This course provides valuable insights into this broad spectrum of scientific disciplines, from the generation of x-rays - via a description of the machines that produce intense x-ray sources - to modern experiments performed using these facilities. The course begins on March 5, 2018, and lasts for nine weeks.
