Dates: August 15-23, 2015
Location: Lyceum Alpinum in Zuoz, Switzerland
Registration deadline: June 30, 2015

Registration is open for the 14th (2015) PSI Summer School on Condensed Matter Research! This year the school's topic will be “Spectroscopy with Neutrons, Muons and Photons”.

The school will take place between August 15-21, 2015 at the Lyceum Alpinum in Zuoz, Switzerland followed by a hands on training course at the PSI large scale facilities on August 22-23, 2015.

Detailed information and online registration is available on the web:


The PSI summer schools on condensed matter physics have a long standing tradition. Based on the previous schools on neutron scattering starting back in 1992 the PSI summer schools aim to train young researchers in the methods being used at large scale facilities such as neutron and muon sources or synchrotron photon sources.
International experts and PSI staff members will introduce and deepen your knowledge not only on methods but also on those phenomena, which are presently at the forefront of modern solid state physics, chemistry or materials sciences.

Practical training:

Following the school a practical training is offered at PSI. It will allow a limited number of participants to get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation using the photon (SLS), neutron (SINQ) and muon (SMuS) facilities at PSI.

Registration deadline: June 30, 2015


A limited number of grants will be available to cover accommodation and the fee for both the school and the practical training for selected PhD students and postdocs. In order to apply for a grant please send your application electronically to the school secretariat before April 30, 2015. More information: .
