Event Name

16th Annual National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering

Start Date 14th Jun 2014
End Date 28th Jun 2014
Purpose: The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students on the utilization 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's Advanced Photon Source and Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities to provide hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.

Target Audience: Graduate students attending universities in North America majoring in physics, chemistry, materials science, or related fields.

Jointly Conducted by: Argonne National Laboratory's Advanced Photon Source and Materials Science Division, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Neutron Scattering Science Division.

Scientific Directors: Suzanne G.E. te Velthuis, Esen Ercan Alp, Argonne; and Bryan C. Chakoumakos, John D. Budai, Oak Ridge.
