PhD supervisor: Prof. Michael Wulff
SO = Scientific Objectives;
TO = Training Objectives.
SO1: Demonstrate time resolved Laue crystallography with sub nanosecond resolution.
SO2: Demonstrate wide-angle scattering with sub nanosecond resolution.
TO1: Training in reaction initiation using short-pulse lasers
TO2: Training in the processing of Laue and WAXS data.
Develop reaction initiation methods using wavelength tuneable short-pulse lasers. Develop sample environments allowing to optically monitoring spectral changes in the changes in the sample in parallel with the X-ray data acquisition. The ESR will also be involved in software developments for real-time data reduction to optimise the efficiency of the experiment. The ESR will be trained in laser and x-ray optics, detector technology and diffraction and scattering theory.
Involvement with other tasks: The ESR will be trained in beamline operation tasks to an extent adequate to perform experiments and will support the partners during common beamtimes at ID09.
Local Training: This ESR will be enrolled as a PhD student at the University of Grenoble (Wulff as academic supervisor) and participate in relevant local courses as well as generic courses like HERCULES run at the ESRF.
