Workshop on X Rays
April 2017

Our group, together with Instituto de Nanosistemas (UNSAM) organized the Workshop "Advances in Small Angle X Ray Scattering and Deep X Ray Litogrpahy". Heinz Amenitsch and Benedetta Marmiroli from Elettra synchrotron (Italy) and TU Graz (Austria) were the main speakers, thanks to a bilateral agreement between the Science ministeries from Argentina and Austria. Moreover, local researchers also presented their recent works on the subject.
