22nd National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering (NXSchool)

  13th Jun 2020 - 27th Jun 2020
Description Graduate students at North American universities are invited to apply to attend the 22nd National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering (NXSchool), which will be held at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Labs from June 13 - 27, 2020.

The NXSchool is designed to introduce students to the capabilities available at U.S. neutron and x-ray user facilities and pays for students’ travel, meals and lodging costs.  Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of neutron and x-ray scattering theory, the characteristics of neutron and synchrotron sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects.  As part of the school, students also conduct a series of short experiments to obtain some hands-on experience using instruments at neutron and synchrotron sources, both at Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities (1st week) and at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source (2nd week). 

Further details can be found at and

Applications must be received by February 17th, 2020. The application process is quite competitive and requires submission of evaluation letters from the student’s advisor and two other professionals familiar with the student.
