International Baltic School 2020 2020-10-19T10:00:19+00:00

The International Research Center “Coherent X-ray optics for Megascience facilities” Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University plans to hold the International Baltic School 2020: New Opportunities of MegaScience Facilities.  The school will be held in Kaliningrad, a city located on the Baltic coast in Russia, from November 02 – 06, 2020.

The International Baltic School will be held on the eve of the 125th anniversary of the discovery of X-rays, which took place on November 8, 1895. The main goal of this school is to highlight the fundamentals of the physics of X-ray and neutron radiation from new generation sources and free electron lasers. Young scientists – participants of the school – will be shown the new opportunities of Megascience facilities, the potential of their use and development prospects.

The format of the event will be mixed (online and offline). Video conferencing will be organized for online participants and lecturers using the Zoom platform.


International Baltic School 2020: New Opportunities of MegaScience Facilities is organized with the support of Russian Science Foundation.
