10th Laboratory Course - Neutron Scattering
13-24 March 2006 . Jülich - Germany
Forschungszentrum Jülich in cooperation with RWTH Aachen and WWU Münster
Registration is closed!
The Institut für Festkörperforschung (Institute für Solid State Research) at the Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, organizes in cooperation with the University of Münster (Prof. D. Richter, Dr. R. Zorn) and the RWTH Aachen (Prof. G. Heger, Prof. T. Brückel) a laboratory course in neutron scattering with experiments at the neutron scattering facilities of the research reactor FRJ-2 in Jülich.
The laboratory course will consist of lectures and an experimental section. The lectures will encompass an introduction to neutron sources, into scattering theory and instrumentation. Furthermore, selected topics of condensed matter will be presented.
The laboratory course is part of the curriculum of the University of Münster and the RWTH Aachen.
It is the aim of the course to give a realistic insight into the experimental technique neutron scattering and its scientific power. The Forschungszentrum Jülich supports non-local students with free accomodation and half pension. Travel stipendia for foreign students are available by support from the European Neutron/Muon Initiative NMI3.

End: 24 March 2006
|The participating students will be divided into nine groups. Each group will perform one neutron scattering experiment per day, i.e. each group will work at five different instruments. The experimental data measured will be analysed by the students assisted by the scientist responsible for the instrument.|
