The synchrotron radiation is a general means of analyzing matter in chemistry and materials science. The aim of this course is to get basic skills of using the synchrotron radiation together with the method of analyzing the data. This two-day practice is carried out at the Photon Factory, Institute of Materials Structure Science, KEK. Students will experience the time-resolved single photon counting synchronized with the incident light pulse and analyzing time-resolved spectra.
By the end of this course, students will be able to
1)acquire the basic skills of the synchrotron radiation science.
2)carry out the time-resolved single photon counting.
2)analyze the time-resolved emission spectra obtained by using the pulsed synchrotron radiation.
synchrotron radiation, pulse structure of synchrotron radiation, time-resolved measurement, photon counting method
