The “37th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering” will be held from 2 – 10 March 2017 at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin in Germany.
The school program consists of three days of lectures giving a theoretical introduction to the fundamentals of neutron scattering and the principles of various neutron scattering techniques. After the lectures, there will be three and a half days of hands-on experiments on seven different neutron scattering instruments. The students will be divided into groups of four to five people from similar subject areas and will do triple-axis spectroscopy, powder diffraction, small angle scattering, reflectometry, time-of-flight spectroscopy, tomography and residual stress analysis under the guidance of experienced scientists.
Furthermore, there will be a students’ poster session which will give the students the opportunity to present their work and discuss with the HZB scientists how neutron scattering could benefit their research. The school will finish with lectures on how to use neutron scattering as a tool for research in the areas of biology, chemistry, engineering and physics etc. This course is part of the curriculum of the Faculty of Mathematics and Sciences at the Technical University Berlin.
There is no registration fee for participation in the 37th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin provides non-local participants with free accommodation. Thanks to SINE2020 a number of European participants may receive support for their travel expenses. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
