International summer school on materials for energy storage and conversion(mESC-IS School 2021) is an integral part of the symposium held with the same name ( International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion, mESC-IS 2021). The summer school, will take place 10-13 September 2021 preceding the symposium. The summer school will take place in virtual mode only .
The school follows the structure of the earlier schools (mESC-School 2015 , mESC-School 2017, and mESC-School 2019 ) and aims to bring new comers/early researchers with those experienced in the field. The school covers the state-of-the-art reviews in selected topics plus in depth coverage of materials and electrochemical characterization techniques.
Tentative list of topics to be covered in the school is listed below.
Y.Eren Kalay(METU):In Situ Synchrotron Diffraction and Rietveld Analysis
