Summer School on Methods and Applications of Neutron Spectroscopy

NIST Center for Neutron Research

June 25-29, 2007

The application deadline has passed

The thirteenth annual NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) "Summer School on Methods and Applications of Neutron Spectroscopy" will be held from Monday, June 25 to Friday, June 29, 2007. This year's summer school is devoted to methods and applications of neutron spectroscopy. Small angle neutron scattering and neutron reflectometry techniques will not be covered.

The summer school will focus on techniques that employ long wavelength neutrons to achieve high energy resolution, enabling the study of dynamical processes over a wide range of time scales, from ~100 ns to ~1 ps. The course includes both lectures and hands-on training. Participants will use four cold neutron instruments (disk chopper spectrometer, backscattering spectrometer, spin echo spectrometer and SPINS triple-axis spectrometer) to perform selected experiments. Invited speakers will give presentations on the application of neutron scattering in their current research activities.

The course is targeted at those with little or no previous experience with neutron inelastic scattering methods. The combination of introductory lectures and training in scattering techniques will provide participants with a unique opportunity to become familiar with neutron scattering methods and their application to current research topics.

Attendance at the summer school will be limited to 32 students.

The Summer School is sponsored by the NCNR and by the National Science Foundation under the Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering (CHRNS) cooperative agreement DMR-0454672. Support for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty may be requested on the summer school application form.
