(Muggia, Trieste, 16-27 September 2019)

The Italian Society of Synchrotron Radiation (SILS) in collaboration with Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, organized the 15th School on Synchrotron Radiation dedicated to graduated students and young researchers. This year, the School received 124 applications and 56 participants from Italian and international research institutes and universities were admitted. Also this edition has been held in Muggia (Italy), a pleasant seaside resort town close to Trieste, where Elettra and FERMI are located. 

The School gave a general overview of the characteristics and potentiality of synchrotron radiation. The emission of synchrotron radiation both from the storage rings and from free electron lasers, its properties, most of the experimental methods used, their fundamentals and applications in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth Science, Material Science and Medicine have been illustrated. Data analysis sessions, as well as experimental training on some of the Elettra beamlines, have been also foreseen. The lecturers were well known scientists with long standing experience on the use of synchrotron radiation in each specific topic.
