This year, ChemMatCARS sponsored its third Liquid Surface and X-ray Scattering School (LSXS) held at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) on May 12-13. This year’s school focused on data analysis methods. There were 26 students from ten different institutions in attendance. Students ranged in experience from undergraduates to post-docs. Multiple techniques were covered including X-ray reflectivity (XR), grazing incidence diffraction (GID), X-ray fluorescence near total reflection (XFNTR), and X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS). One student exclaimed, “For me the most beneficial part was learning the theory behind the x-ray experiments, getting an intuition for what the data means and how to interpret it, and learning about how thery’re applied to various systems/applications. I also learned about the kind of research that other users are doing”.
