The small-angle neutron scattering(SANS) and neutron reflectometry (NR) facilities at NIST's Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) will be the focus of this, the sixth annual, NCNR/NSF-sponsored summer school on neutron scattering. These facilities, which are among the best in the world for the examination of bulk and interfacial microstructure on a scale from roughly 1 to 500 nm, are available to any qualified researchers who submit experiment proposals which then undergo peer review. This four and one-half day course will provide potential new users of these techniques with a basic understandinag of the fundamental concepts and methodology along with training in the use of the SANS and NR facilities at the NCNR. Applications of the techniques will be illustrated by specific examples drawn from recent research in polymer science, nanophase metals and ceramics, microporous media, magnetism, superconductivity, and structural biology. This year's course will also highlight the capabilities of the new NCNR/NSF Perfect Crystal Diffractometer (PCD) for ultra-high resolution SANS. The course will enable attendees to assess the applicability of the techniques, and the NCNR instruments, to their own research interests and provide technical information need to prepare effective experiment proposals. The workshop will be sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation, and support for graduate students and junior faculty will be available. Attendance will be limited.
