Dear Colleagues,

I am cross-posting Stefaan Cottenier's announcement on an on-line course about the physics of hyperfine interactions and the concepts of experimental methods based upon those will be organized at Ghent University, Belgium.

Best regards,

Dear colleague,

Starting on February 8, an on-line course about the physics of  hyperfine interactions and the concepts of experimental methods based  upon those will be organized at Ghent University, Belgium. As a kind  of social experiment, this course will be open for on-line  participation by anybody with an interest in the topic.

If you know people who might be interested to attend "hyperfinecourse"  on-line, kindly forward them this message.

"hyperfinecourse" is taught at a level that is accessible to students  with a bachelor in physics, chemistry or engineering. The language is  English.

The course was meant originally for students at Ghent University,  Belgium. Since two years, the content is offered through a set of  weekly videos (screencasts), which the students watch on-line prior to  coming to class. As a side-effect, the content becomes accessible to  people not studying in Ghent as well.

If you take this course, it means you should spend 40 to 90 minutes  each week to watch the videos, and another 1 to 2 hours to make the  tasks that come with the videos. A report on the tasks has to be  submitted every week, one day before the weekly class session. During  the class session, problems that arose while making the tasks will be  discussed. These class sessions happen in Ghent, but live-stream  access will be provided for remote students (screen + audio). As a new  feature for this year, all students will have the possibility to  discus asynchronously with each other within the slides that are used  in the videos.

The weekly class sessions are on Wednesdays, at 9h00 UTC. This is  convenient for Europe, Africa and Asia, less so for North- and  South-America. If there would be considerable interest from the latter  continents, we will examine whether it is feasible to store the live  session recording for 24 hours. In any case, you get 80% of the  experience even without attending the live sessions.

Background information on this project can be found in this video  (, recorded at the HFI-NQI conference in  Canberra (2014).

The course will start on February 8, and will run during 12 weeks  until May 13 (with a two-week break from March 28 until April 8).

A few weeks after the end of "hyperfinecourse", there will be the  HYPERFINE 2016 conference in Leuven (Belgium)  ( For participants of the course who will  be at the conference, a meeting will be organized just before or  during the conference. This will be an opportunity to meet your class  mates in real life, and to discuss any remaining hyperfine questions.

If you are interested to join, either as a participant or as an  observer, or if you want to keep being informed later, fill out your  information here: .   This one-time message is sent to the mailing list used for the  conference series on hyperfine interactions and their applications. No  further emails on this course will be sent to this list. If you want  to receive further information on hyperfinecourse, please fill out the  form mentioned above.

Kind regards,

Stefaan Cottenier (co-chair of HYPERFINE 2016)
