Atomic dynamics to large extend determines the microscopic mechanisms of the structural phase transition. Since the first observation by C.V. Raman the mode softening in quartz in 1940 theoretical approaches and experimental techniques had undergone. Nowadays it is possible to study dynamics in the broad range of characteristic times and spatial scales. In the frames of the “Young scientists school on the spectroscopic studies” that will be held as a satellite for the Russia/CIS/Baltic/Japan Symposium on Ferroelectricity (RCBJSF2018). Leading specialists in the field of the spectroscopic studies of ferroelectrics will present lectures on (but not limited to) the Ultrabroadband dielectric spectroscopy, THz spectroscopy, inelastic scattering of neutrons and X-rays (including the methods with µeV resolution). Dynamic extension of the Pair Distribution Function method – DPDF – will be described with the examples of the application of DPDF for the study of relaxors.
Application of the X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (XPCS) for the study of Relaxors will we described. The Lectures on the new theoretical approaches and the model calculations will be presented also.

We are inviting the young (and not only) scientists and students to obtain the new information directly from the people who are developing corresponding methods and approaches.
