The main aim of the MD-GAS COST Action (CA18212), which brings together scientists from 31 countries and 4 industrial partners, is to develop a new physical and chemical toolbox to significantly advance the understanding in the field of gas phase molecular dynamics induced by the interactions between molecules or clusters and photons, electrons, or heavy particles and its consequences for a broad range of applications in e.g. astrochemical and atmospheric sciences, and molecular radiation damage.
The school will be held in 12-15 July 2022 at Area Science Park, Campus Padriciano, Trieste – Italy.
The MD-GAS Training School "Molecular dynamics in the gas phase: experimental tools and methods" offers lessons dedicated to the development of instruments and the implementation of methods which provide new opportunities in molecular physics and physical chemistry and seminars on the related applications in the astrochemistry, atmospheric chemistry, radiation damage and life science fields
The topics are:
• sources of atomic, molecular and nanoaggregate beams
• detectors and spectrometers
• electron impact experiments
• ion collision and storage ring experiments
• synchrotron, FEL and ultrafast experiments
Virtual tours of a selection of large scale infrastructures participating to the Action will be offered.
The school will be on-site with attendance limited to 50 trainees and with priority given to PhD students and early career researchers.
The participation to the school is free of charge.
The registration form is available on the MD-GAS Web page and the deadline for the application is May 31st.
The MD-GAS COST Action will provide financial support for a limited number of participants. The participants interested in the support should fill the application form available at the MD-GAS web page before April 25th, 2022.
