2012 Technical Conference: Center for Atomic-level Catalyst Design Oct. 8-10, 2012


LSU Welcomes CALC-D researchers to the Center's 4th Annual Technical Conference. Over 50 investigators from the US and Europe, along with students and post-docs, will exchange information over the 3 days of the conference. The conference will feature technical presentations, tours of LSU's synchrotron facility , and five short courses designed to introduce students to the principles and application of various advanced techniques, such as X-ray absorption and density functional theory.
