Introduction to the theory and techniques of neutron scattering and applications to Cultural Heritage

Course within the International School of Solid State Physics (Director: Giorgio Benedek).

ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC CULTURE, ERICE (I)
The school will be held at the ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC CULTURE, Erice (Sicily, I) as a specialized course within the International School of Solid State Physics (Director: Giorgio Benedek), between the 30th April and the 9th of May 2014.
About
The School Francesco Paolo Ricci is an international school, established in 1994, providing a comprehensive training in the fundamental concepts of neutron scattering.

The school provides an excellent introduction to neutron scattering which is developed through to its application in contemporary research. It consists mainly of lectures and tutorials covering both the theory and technical aspects of neutron scattering with a particular emphasis on applications to Cultural Heritage. In addition to lectures on theory, sources, and neutron instrumentation, students will be tutored by world leading experts in the various scattering techniques including diffraction, quasi-elastic and inelastic scattering, imaging, small-angle scattering, reflectometry, and neutron-spin-echo.

The XII edition of the School will be held at the ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC CULTURE (EMCSC)  as a Course within the International School of Solid State Physics (Director: Giorgio Benedek).

  • School Director: Ian Anderson (Oak Ridge National Laboratory, US)
  • School Vice-Directors: Gabriele Salvato (CNR, IT), Antonella Scherillo (ISIS, UK) 

School Objectives: Educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron facilities, in neutron scattering techniques, instrumentation and data collection, analysis and interpretation. Expose participants to cutting-edge research in neutron application to Cultural Heritage. Build interactions between graduate students, their research centres and university groups, Lectures will include basic and simulation tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods.

Target Audience: The School is ideally suited to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Students attending universities majoring in chemistry, physics, materials science, or related fields.
