• There are still few places available for the Summer School on Experimental Nano-and Micromechanics, being held from 11th to 15th of September 2017 at the Max-Planck für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf (Germany). PhD students and Postdocs are encourage to apply by sending an e-mail to micromech2017@mpie.de before the registration deadline on June 2nd.

    For reminder: The school is organized by Christoph Kirchlechner (MPIE, Düsseldorf) and Benoit Merle (FAU, Erlangen) and aims at providing a comprehensive overview on experimental nano- and micromechanical testing methods. Focus thereby is put on material properties which we can reliably extract from in situ micromechanical experiments. The school will deal with nanoindentation, methods to explore the small-scale plastic and fracture properties of materials and interfaces, frequently used characterization techniques with in situ capabilities and, finally, simulation techniques.

    Registration is limited to 40 participants. The participation fee is 250€ and includes a BBQ party and 3 lunches, as well as all drinks during the school.

    Further information can be found at www.mpie.de/2768772/scientific-events.

  • Many Laboratories are unaware of the existence of the Laue microdiffraction or these capacities which are superior to those of the past. In September we offer you an opportunity to take charge of the microdiffraction technique and bring it to the most effective level in the implementation of a campaign of measures well prepared and well conducted in the Data exploitation and results interpretation.

    The formation will be exclusively in French. Francophones are welcome.

    Deadline for registration: July 13th, 2017

    Scientific contact: Jean-Sébastien Micha, micha@esrf.fr

    Administrative contact: Céline Haranczyk, céline.haranczyk@dr11.cnrs.fr
