IKZ Summer School: Dynamics and Processes in Crystalline Materials – Time resolved electron and X-ray studies

Mittwoch, 31. August 2022 - Freitag, 02. September 2022

Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ)

Max-Born-Str. 2a, 12489 Berlin

Advances in experimental instruments and techniques have paved the way for the investigation of functional materials in-situ and under operando conditions. A big step forward is the ability to study the transient state of crystalline materials in “realistic” conditions, such as under optical excitation, electric/magnetic fields or high temperature. These insights lead to a better understanding of non-equilibrium processes in materials and enable their optimization for highly efficient, stable and sustainable future technologies.

This year’s IKZ Summer School sets the focus on a selection of the method developments with a high priority for the investigation of structural dynamics in crystalline materials in the fields of Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and X-Ray Diffraction / Imaging (XRD). Common to these methods is the ability to capture phenomena on a broad range of time and length scales stretching from few nanometers (nm) to millimeters (mm) and picoseconds (ps) to milliseconds (ms). We discuss potentials and limitations of the techniques in context of selected, recent applications in materials science. A special focus is set on ferroic correlations, phase transitions and domain dynamics in complex systems.
