Physical Characterization of Materials


and

4th DAEPHYS PhD student Workshop


Universidade de Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal

School: July 9-12, 2018; Workshop: July 13, 2018


The Doctoral Program in Applied and Engineering Physics (DAEPHYS) is an FCT funded PhD program involving four Portuguese Universities - UA, UC, UL and UNL - and three research centers - "Centro de Instrumentação (CI)", "Instituto de Nanoestruturas, Nanomodelação e Nanofabricação (I3N)" and "Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas (LIP)".


In 2018, DAEPHYS holds its annual School in Aveiro, being dedicated to Physical Characterization of Materials. The School is followed by a PhD Student Workshop. These two events aim to provide an opportunity for PhD students under DAEPHYS Program and other related PhD Programs to meet and discuss their research work and to expand their knowledge to different topics of Applied and Engineering Physics.


The School will include topics such as:

  • Quantum sensing technologies

  • Photovoltaic cells

  • Luminescence in thermometry

  • Impedance spectroscopy

  • Vibrating Sample Magnetometer

  • Physics in medicine

  • Luminescence of materials

  • Optical fiber sensors

  • Electronic structure calculations



For DAEPHYS students, both the School & Workshop constitute an essential part of their PhD program.


Both events are also opened to PhD students of other related PhD Programs and last year Master’s students. PhD students at all stages (beginning, middle or end) should find plenty to interest and benefit them.  Masters students about to get their degree are also welcome to apply.

The school welcomes 24 students. The workshop has no limited number of participants.


Participation in the School and/or Workshop is free of charge (no registration fee).


To register to the school and/or workshop and submit an abstract for presentation at the workshop proceed to registration form.


The DAEPHYS PhD students have accommodation at a residence of University of Aveiro, meals at the student’s restaurant (from July 9-13) and travel expenses (by train in touristic class or bus) covered by DAEPHYS Program.


DAEPHYS School & Workshop 2018 receives financial support from FCT through the PhD FCT Programs initiative.


Deadlines:

- Registration submission in DAEPHYS School 2018: June 15, 2018

- Abstract submission for presentations at the Workshop: June 20, 2018.

- Workshop registration: June 20, 2018


Due to the limited number of places for the School, a selection committee will select 24 students. The selected students will then be asked for confirming the registration by email to daephys@fis.uc.pt by June 20.


School

The school offers theoretical and experimental talks/lectures together with hands on sessions on Physical Characterization of Materials. The presentations are given by high-level experts in the topics covered by the School.



Workshop

The Workshop aims to provide a forum for the PhD Students and last year Master students to present their research work (already going on or only planned). The number of participants in the workshop is not limited.


Venue

The School and Workshop will take place at the Physics Department of University of Aveiro.


Detailed information on how to reach the Physics Department, including a map, may be found here.


Accommodation

The School and Workshop participants can have accommodation from 9 to 13 July at a university residence 5 Bicas, covered by the DAEPHYS Program.


Meals

Meals can be taken at the student’s restaurant or several other small restaurants around Physics Department.


The DAEPHYS PhD students have meals at the student’s restaurant from 9 to 13 July covered by the organization.
