Dates announced for the 19th JCNS Laboratory Course
A realistic insight into the experimental techniques of neutron scattering.
Dates: 7 – 18 September 2015
Location: Jülich and Garching, Germany
Application deadline: 25 May 2015
Organized by Forschungszentrum Jülich in cooperation with RWTH Aachen and WWU Münster.
The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science of Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, organises in cooperation with the University of Münster (Prof. D. Richter, Dr. R. Zorn) and the RWTH Aachen University (Prof. T. Brückel, Prof. G. Heger, Prof. G. Roth) a laboratory course in neutron scattering with experiments at the neutron scattering facilities of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum MLZ.
The course consists of two parts: a series of lectures, combined with the opportunity to take part in neutron scattering experiments. The lectures encompass an introduction to neutron sources, along with scattering theory and instrumentation. Furthermore, selected topics of condensed matter research are be presented.
Lectures are held at Forschungszentrum Jülich and the experiments take place at the neutron facilities of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum in Garching near Munich.
The laboratory course is part of the curriculum of the University of Münster and the RWTH Aachen.
The aim of the course to give a realistic insight into the experimental technique of neutron scattering and its scientific potential. Forschungszentrum Jülich supports students from outside the area with free accommodation and half-board. Travel expenses will be reimbursed within reasonable limits.
Support to attend the school
This school is part of the group of schools supported by NMI3. The laboratory course is free of charge and there is no tuition fee. Forschungszentrum Jülich supports students from out of the area with free accommodation and half-board. Travel stipends for foreign students are also available.
