The Zurich School of Crystallography

The Zurich school is taking place every second year in the University of Zurich in early summer. The aim of the school is to train student in the field of structural science by diffraction methods. The course contains both theoretical and experimental parts. The theoretical part includes the concepts of symmetry, diffraction, structure determination, structure interpretation in relation to crystal chemistry and physics. In the experimental part, participants can bring their own samples to study their structures.
