Les Houches Physics School
|Scholarship / Financial aid: undefined|
Date: 9-20 January 2012
Open to: young researchers in the domains of information processing and geosciences
The school will cover physics with trapped charged particles, including physics of trapped charged particles. Lectures will cover basic trap physics in Penning traps, Paul traps etc., collective behavior and plasmas, as well as applications for fundamental physics, precision spectroscopy, quantum information, frequency standards, antimatter, and recent developments.
This one week spring school is aimed at young researchers in the domains of information processing and geosciences using SAR images. The one week school will concentrate on tools and methods of SAR data analysis and applications in monitoring geophysical phenomena at the origin of observed displacements (earthquakes, volcanoes, glaciers). The program stretches from electromagnetic backscattering to physical model inversion, including practical work and observation on the site Chamonix Mont-Blanc.
