ILL/ESRF International Student Summer Programme on X-Ray and Neutron Science

Start Date 3rd Sep 2017
End Date 30th Sep 2017
Description

Seminars

During the first days of your stay, a series of introductory lectures will make you familiar with the basic principles of neutrons and x-rays :

  • Fundamental principles
  • Techniques used for their production (nuclear reactor, synchrotron)
  • Instrumentation and measurement techniques
  • Interaction with matter


 Further on during your stay, various scientists from the ILL and the ESRF will give you insight into some more specific aspects of the application of neutrons and x-rays in a number different scientific fields, such as:

  • Diffraction and structure of materials
  • Imaging
  • Nuclear and particle phyiscs
  • Structural biology
  • Magnetism
  • Spectroscopy and inelastic scattering
  • Soft matter studies
  • and other examples of today's scientific questions


 In general, the content and the difficulty of the presentations will be adapted such that they are accessible for a third-year student who is interested in these subjects.

 

Project work

During a large portion of your time you will work on an individual scientific project, embedded in one of the research groups at the ILL or ESRF. You will be tutored by one or several scientists of the institutes, with whom you will work together and who will ensure assistance and any other help you may need.

These projects are proposed by our research groups and are typically closely related to their actual scientific activities. They are therefore quite diverse and may be from any possible field on which the members of our institutes are working. We will try to match the subjects with your personal interests if you mention them to us and if it is possible; it may also be the occasion for you to discover a field which is completely new to you.

At the end of your stay, a seminar will be organized in which all participants give a short presentation of the results they have obtained.


 And also…

In addition to the series of lectures and your work on a project with one of our research groups, some activities will be organized in the evenings or on weekends, like excursions into town or into the mountains which are surrounding Grenoble.
