Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from the EPFL

The Massive Open Online Course is aimed at a broad scientific audience from historical-artefact restorators and paleontologists, through biologists, biochemists and chemical engineers, to materials scientists and physicists. It includes the following themes: 


1) Interaction of x-rays with matter; 


2) The production and physics of synchrotron and XFEL radiation; 


3) X-ray optics, beamlines, and instrumentation;


4) X-ray diffraction and scattering; 


5) UV and x-ray spectroscopies; 


6) X-ray imaging (mainly tomography and lensless imaging/ptychography); 


7) Extra week on phasing techniques in macromolecular crystallography. 


The course begins on 5th March 2018 and lasts for nine weeks - each week, two to three new videos are released (youTube videos embedded in the edX player, which can be downloaded and viewed at leisure), each approximately 20 minutes long, plus optional problems (and optional final exam at the end of the course). Enrollment on the course (see above link) is free; a Verified Certificate can be purchased at the end for those who so wish and have achieved the pass grade.
