International school on aperiodic crystals
September 8, 2019 - September 14, 2019
The Commission on Aperiodic Crystals of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) organises the 4th edition of the school “International school on aperiodic Crystals” (ISAC4).
This school will take place in Portbail (Normandy) from September 8 to 14 2019. The targeted audience is clearly a non-specialist one: Phd students, young or experienced scientists working in the field of crystallography, chemistry, material science or solid state physic and willing to have a basic understanding of aperiodic crystals.The school will be organized on 5 days in Normandy, north-west of France. Experts in the field of aperiodic crystal will give lectures, in a tutorial way and on a step by step basis. The number of participants will be limited to 40 in order to facilitate exchanges. After an introduction to the high dimensional concept, the basis of the structure determination of aperiodic crystal will be introduced for each class of aperiodic crystals. Various examples will then be presented, together with overviews on phase transitions, phonons and phasons, simulations and aperiodic crystal stability.Tutorial in small groups (20) will also be organized in order to practice the notions learned in the lectures.
