Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford in the United KingdomDescription
The ISIS practical neutron training course will take place next year between the 5th and 14th March 2013. The course is aimed at PhD and post-doctoral researchers who have little or no experience of neutron scattering, but whose future research program aims to make use of neutron scattering techniques. The course concentrates on practical aspects of neutron scattering, using the suite of ISIS neutron instruments.
Outline of Course
- Basic Principles:
(Safety, Neutron Time-of-flight, Detectors, Neutron materials, Instrument Components, Neutron Scattering Theory)
- Soft Matter:
(Sample preperation and deuteration, Small-angle neutron scattering, Neutron reflectometry)
(Neutron diffraction, magnetic Rietveld refinement (Fullprof), inelastic scattering – polycrystals and single crystals)
- Chemistry and Materials:
(Powder and single crystal diffraction, Rietveld refinement (GSAS), Strain scanning, Diffuse scattering, Non-crystalline materials scattering)
- Optional Modules:
(Computational methods, Quasi-elastic scattering, Molecular spectroscopy, Polarized reflectometry)
All participants do the Basic Principles section, and then choose to follow one of the Physics, Chem and Materials, or Soft Matter components.
The course includes accommodation in Cosener’s House, Abingdon and travel expenses (within the UK) – and is FREE to participating students and post-docs.
APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2013 NEUTRON TRAINING COURSE ARE NOW OPEN.
