PhD Course: Structural State of Minerals and its Applications

Understanding crystal structure of minerals and applying diffraction methods for their structural characterization, quantification in mixtures and analysis of behaviour under varying temperature and pressure. Lectures and experimental work, with an introduction to modern diffractometric techniques, databases and calculation methods.

Assoc. Prof. Tonci Balic-Zunic, University of Copenhagen
Assoc. Prof. Paola Comodi, University of Perugia, Italy
Dr. Patrick Mercier, National Research Council of Canada
Dr. Anna Katerinopoulou, University of Copenhagen
