MAPEX-CF Workshop – Functional Oxides: synthesis, analysis, and characterization
09-10 June 2022
Promoted by the MAPEX-CF investigation areas Spectroscopy and X-ray Diffraction, this workshop connected researchers working with 'Functional Oxides' and provided different perspectives ranging from synthesis and characterization to the applications of such materials. Around 30 participants from diverse research areas ranging from Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering joined the event at the campus of the University of Bremen and also online.
During the two days of the event, a multidisciplinary audience was able to follow invited talks from experts from Germany and abroad showcasing cutting-edge research done with oxides. Hot topics such as synthesis of nanoparticle oxides, thin-film and single-crystal growth, structure-property relationships, and advanced characterization techniques were covered and valuable discussions took place.
The event was closed with guided laboratory tours, where the participants could see firsthand the instrumentation available at MAPEX-CF within the investigation areas Spectroscopy, X-ray Diffraction, and Electron Microscopy.

MAPEX workshop & user meeting - 3D Materials Analytics 2021
08 September 2021
Developed within the investigation area 3D Materials Analytics of the MAPEX-CF, this meeting aimed to connect researchers active or interested in the fields of x-ray microscopy and x-ray computed tomography. From engineering to biology, geology, and materials science, the one-day workshop and user meeting hosted around 30 participants from diverse research areas in a fully virtual environment.
Early career researchers were given the opportunity to present their work and also follow an outstanding introductory lecture about 3D X-ray microscopy and X-ray microtomography given by Dr. Wolf-Achim Kahl, displaying the know-how that MAPEX and MAPEX-CF can offer to the science community. The event was complemented by round-table discussions, which instigated the knowledge exchange between the participants further strengthening the commitment of the MAPEX and MAPEX-CF to connect researchers and bridge the gaps between scientific fields.
