Lab course (Praktikum)

The lab course takes place at a beam line at PSI during CW 28/29 (July 12-25).  Each participant should spend two full days at PSI. We will discuss the schedule and other details during the lecture on June 4th.  All participants work together as a single team to analyse the collected data and write a joint lab report. In case of questions, please contact Lea Caminada und Olaf Steinkamp at our email addresses listed at the top of this page.
