Research training at KBC

Doctoral courses at KBC cover a lot of state of the art techniques and methods within life sciences. They are mainly organised by the KBC Core Facilities and Infrastructures. The courses are usually open to all PhD students and Postdocs, and other users of the core facilities at KBC. Also external users or collaborators with KBC are welcome to participate. Note that registration does not guarantee you a place in a course, especially when there is a limited number of places. You will be notified by the course leader who will also provide you with course schedule and detailed information about the course.
KBC Communication office is supporting with announcement and organisation. The KBC communication officers answer general questions.

Vibrational Spectroscopy - User Licence Course - 2 ECTS

12 - 16 November 2018, at KBC, Vibrational Spectroscopy Core Facility.
Registration deadline: 28 October 2018

Introduction to the usage of FT-IR spectrometers and microscopes as well as a Raman microscope. The course covers applications from biology and medicine to chemistry and physics, such as high-throughput transgenic screening, chemical imaging of biological tissues, surface sensitive measurements of minerals, and the analysis of compositional changes in a range of materials from bacteria to semiconductors.

Cleanroom technology – User License Course (1.5 ECTS), 22-23 November 2018

This course is organised by Roushday Salh, Manager of the Cleanroom at the Department of Physics.
Registration deadline: 19 November 2018.

A cleanroom is an environment, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research, with a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors. More accurately, a cleanroom has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size.

The course will introduce the participants (users) to the cleanroom environment and provide them with the necessary knowledge for correctly use of the cleanrooms and operate the facilities and run their own experiments in cleanroom environment without direct supervision. The course contents are validation and monitoring of the cleanroom, cleanroom maintains, gowning, cleanroom good practice. No entry permission will be given to the cleanroom without attending cleanroom technology course.

Thin Film Deposition technology (Physical Vapor Deposition) (1.5 ECTS), 5-7 December 2018

This course is organised by Roushdey Salah, Department of Physics.
Registration deadline: 3 December

Physical Vapor Deposition technology (sputtering, evaporation, etc.), abbreviated as PVD technology, offers interesting applications for products of our everyday life, like coatings on glass, metals, polymers, ceramics etc.

This interesting technology has proven to be able to create enormous supplementary value to many products. Therefore it is in wide use in many fields such as; optical coatings, photovoltaic, semiconductor, photo electrochemical cells, optoelectronic, flat panel displays, data storage, super capacitor, gas sensors and many others. Thin Film Deposition technology can well be regarded as the major key to the creation of devices such as computers, since microelectronic solid-state devices are all based on material structures created by the deposition techniques.
