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.

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