Attend the 18th National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering

Modified: March 30, 2016

Graduate students at North American universities are invited to apply to attend the 18th National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering, which will be held at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Labs from July 30 - August 12, 2016. This school 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 provide some hands-on experience using instruments at neutron and synchrotron sources, both at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source (August 7-12), and Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities (July 30 - August 6).  

Further details can be found on the website. Applications must be submitted by April 4. The application process is quite competitive and requires submission of evaluation letters from among the student’s advisor, department chair and other professors.
