We are pleased to announce that 'The 36th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering' will be held from 25th February to 4th March 2016 at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin in Germany.

The school program

The school program consists of three days of lectures giving a theoretical introduction to the fundamentals of neutron scattering and the principles of various neutron scattering techniques. After the lectures, there will be three and a half days of hands-on experiments on seven different neutron scattering instruments.

The students will be divided into groups of four to five people from similar subject areas and will do triple-axis spectroscopy, powder diffraction, small angle scattering, reflectometry, time-of-flight spectroscopy, tomography and residual stress analysis under the guidance of experienced scientists.

Furthermore, there will be a students’ poster session which will give the students the opportunity to present their work and discuss with the HZB scientists how neutron scattering could benefit their research.

The school will finish with lectures on how to use neutron scattering as a tool for research in the areas of biology, chemistry, engineering and physics etc. This course is part of the curriculum of the Faculty of Mathematics and Sciences at the Technical University Berlin.
