Summer School on Neutron Small-Angle Scattering 
and Reflectometry from Submicron Structures

NIST Center for Neutron Research
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Gaithersburg, MD 20899

JUNE 5-9, 2000

The small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and neutron reflectometry (NR) 
facilities at NIST's Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) will be the focus 
of this, the sixth annual, NCNR/NSF-sponsored summer school on neutron 
scattering.  These facilities, which are among the best in the world for 
the examination of bulk and interfacial microstructure on a scale from 
roughly 1 to 500 nm, are available to any qualified researchers who 
submit experiment proposals which then undergo peer review.  This four 
and one-half  day course will provide potential new users of these 
techniques with a basic understandinag of the fundamental concepts and 
methodology along with training in the use of the SANS and NR facilities 
at the NCNR.  Applications of the techniques will be illustrated by 
specific examples drawn from recent research in polymer science, 
nanophase metals and ceramics, microporous media, magnetism, 
superconductivity, and structural biology.  This year's course will also 
highlight the capabilities of the new NCNR/NSF Perfect Crystal 
Diffractometer (PCD) for ultra-high resolution SANS.  The course will 
enable attendees to assess the applicability of the techniques, and the 
NCNR instruments, to their own research interests and provide technical 
information needed to prepare effective experiment proposals.  The 
workshop is sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation, and 
support for graduate students and junior faculty from North America will 
be available.  Attendance will be limited.

Additional information and application forms are available on the NCNR's 
web site, http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/staff/charlie/school00.html, or by 
email at SS00@jazz.ncnr.nist.gov.
