HERCULES, a four-week course to provide training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from all around the world in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications). It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities... A yearly event, started in 1991. LMGP is widely associated in organization, practicals and teaching as well.
Technical training in TEM and SEM microcopy
Transmission Electron Mircoscopy (TEM) sample preparation Objectives : getting minimum theoretical and practical knowledge in sample preparation techniques for materials science using TEM. A national training session intended for research scientists and engineers. It is organised by L. Rapenne (LMGP) in collaboration with J. Ayache (LM2C) on Minatec-LMGP, in partnership with FMNT, CMTC plateforms. A yearly event coordinated by CNRS FORMATION Entreprises. CNRS FORMATION Entreprises. More info
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM / MEB) Since 1977, CMTC provides basic to advanced training in all aspects of Scanning Electron Microscopy. LMGP is strongly involved in these trainings. more info
Introduction to sciences
LMGP is also dealing with introducing physics for kids from 3 to about 15 year old. The pedagogical and scientific approaches are very close to the concept of Main à la pâte, where kids are actively involved in performing experiments, making suggestions, testing them through experiments, and discussing and presenting them. This project is proposed in the framework of the first year of study at the Engineering School Grenoble INP - Phelma and coordinated by D. Bellet, professor of Grenoble INP. Every year, about 30 students of Phelma are involved in this project, and 300-400 kids in 10-20 different classrooms of schools near Grenoble, plus kids located at the Grenoble's hospital benefit of this programme.
