RADIATE Summer School

Astrid Berens
Applications for the spring school have been reviewed and all applicants have been contacted!

The RADIATE Summer Schools are aimed at doctoral students and early stage researchers wishing to understand the basic physics underlying ion beam techniques. Scientists wishing to refresh their knowledge are also welcome to sign up for summer schools.

RADIATE spring school 2021

Originally planned to take place in conjunction with IBMM-2020, it has now been decided to move the school online as it cannot be foreseen when actual travel is possible again.

The RADIATE spring school 2021 will take place from 28-30 April and is organized by IST in Lisbon, Portugal. The health conditions responsible for postpone still impose an online organization but this will make us work harder to offer you a challenge event. The school will be an excellent ground for early researchers or PhD students to get familiar with the basics of Ion Beam Modification of Materials.

The first day will cover the fundamentals of ion solid interactions with emphasis on the modeling of physical processes to describe defect evolution and ion distributions. The relevant codes will be described and both the binary collision and molecular dynamics approaches will be addressed. During the second and third days, the most used software codes for damage analysis, profile studies and lattice site location of the implanted ions will be presented. At the end the students will be asked to give their opinion on the content and highlights of the school.

A group of world experts in the field will guarantee outstanding lectures contributing for the anticipated success of the School.

The time zone of the spring school is Central European Time (CET).
