The school will provide a general overview of the recent advances in diamond research. In detail, for this edition of the school we will combine geology, exploration and gemology of diamond.
Committed speakers include the world's leading scientists in their fields. The school, following its tradition, will provide not only theoretical lectures but also practical sessions focused on microscope observations of a complete inclusion-bearing diamond collection (Zeiss will provide 15 binocular microscopes suitable for such observations) and micro-Raman spectroscopy real analyses (Horiba Scientific will make available a real micro-Raman spectrometer to measure diamonds and their inclusions).
The school is open to Master, Ph.D. students, and senior researchers of any research fields.
Organizing Committee: Fabrizio Nestola, Steven Shirey, Graham Pearson, Wuyi Wang and Matteo Alvaro
