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 (shown above) and Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source (shown at right) and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities to provide hands-on
experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.
Target Audience: Graduate students attending North American universities majoring in physics, chemistry, materials science, or related fields.
Jointly Conducted by: Argonne National Laboratory's Communications, Education and Public Affairs Division; Advanced Photon
Source and Materials Science Division; and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Biology and Soft Matter Division; Chemical and Engineering Materials Division; and Condensed Matter Division.
