NXS 2017: 19th National School on Neutron and X-Ray Scattering

Start Date 5th Aug 2017
End Date 19th Aug 2017

Application deadline: Monday, April 10, 2017

The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students attending North American universities in the use of major neutron and X-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry and national laboratories, will include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short experiments at Argonne National Laboratory's Advanced Photon Source and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor, which provides hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.
The selection process is highly competitive with priority given to students who are in an early stage in their research projects and who are likely to use a wide range of X-ray and/or neutron techniques and thus will benefit from the breadth of the school.
