          ** WELCOME TO THE X-RAY LABORATORY 2022 **

In collaboration with the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Bologna (DIFA), OAS-Bologna organizes combined seminars/laboratories, investigating a broad range of astronomical systems through detection and analysis of their X-ray emission and other radiation they emit.

The laboratory runs for three weeks (21 February-11 March 2022).

Students working in small groups are introduced to the current problematics of supermassive black holes in order to contextualize their X-ray data analysis exercises. In addition, the X-ray laboratory offers the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with the essential instrumentation tools of modern X-ray astronomy. At the end of the tutorial, students summarize the laboratory experience in a power-point presentation organized as a professional communication to an Astrophysical Conference.

X-ray Lab is part of the Astrophysics Laboratory course of DIFA Bologna.
