Summer School

The summer school precedes the symposium and aims to bring  new comers-early researchers with those experienced in the field. The school covers the state-of-the-art reviews in selected topics plus in depth coverage of materials and electrochemical characterization techniques.

We plan hands-on sessions  on  Rietveld refinement of XRD/Synchrotron data.  We are also considering to include  similar sessions   on electrochemical impendence spectroscopy for battery as well as for fuel cells research.

Details regarding hands-on sessions on Rietveld  and EIS   would soon be announced on this page.

Topics to be covered in the summer school are as follows;

Material/Electrochemical Characterization
 Y.Eren Kalay:In Situ Synchrotron Diffraction and Rietveld Analysis
Matthew Lacey: Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy for Battery Research
Meltem Sezen:Focus Ion Beam Techniques in Material Characterization
Servet Turan Advanced Techniques in Electron Microscopy
-X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy in battery research/ TBA
