10. November 2014 - 14. November 2014 4th Annual Niels Bohr International Academy Workshop on ESS Science

Niels Bohr International Academy in Copenhagen


The main focus of the 2014 workshop-school will be the combination of elastic and inelastic scattering methods, such as reflectometry, quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering ( QENS and INS) to gain detailed understanding of relationships between structural and dynamic properties and thus ultimately the function of diverse materials. The needs and interests of students with a background in the hard-condensed matter sciences will be addressed with discussion on the use of these experimental methods in magnetism. Results of studies using polarized neutron reflectometry (PNR), INS and inelastic X-rays scattering (INX) will be at the core of those tutorials.

Following the successful formula from the last years, the students will be given a small project and will be guided by the lecturers to a solution. In parallel with, and following the school we plan to hold a small but intensive scientific meeting on carefully selected topics of relevance to the school and of current interest with extensive discussion between experimental and computational scientists.

This workshop is sponsored by the Niels Bohr International Academy, by the PhD School of the University of Copenhagen, by the Institut Fran├žais du Danemark and by the European Spallation Source (ESS) . There is no fee for the participants, but attendance will be limited.

The school is limited to 20 students to be selected from the applications received.
