Summer School on the Fundamentals of Neutron Scattering

NIST Center for Neutron Research
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Gaithersburg, MD 20899

Week 1 - "Methods and Applications of High Resolution Neutron Spectroscopy and Small Angle Neutron Scattering" - June 12 to June 16, 2011

Week 2 - “Methods and Applications of Cold and Thermal Neutron Spectroscopy” - June 19 to June 23, 2011

The NIST/NSF Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering (CHRNS) holds a week long course, most often in June, on the fundamentals of neutron scattering. These courses are aimed to draw new instrument and facility users to the NCNR.

This year, the school will be split into two sections: soft condensed matter from June 12-16 and hard condensed matter from June 19 to 23. The soft matter section will cover both neutron spectroscopy and small angle neutron scattering (SANS) while the hard matter section will only cover neutron spectroscopy.

Please note this years schools will be conducted during a facility shutdown, thus all experiments will be simulated.
