16th JCNS Laboratory Course - Neutron Scattering 2012
September 3-14, 2012 Jülich/Garching - Germany
Organised by Forschungszentrum Jülich in cooperation with RWTH Aachen and WWU Münster.
The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, organises in cooperation with the University of Münster (Prof. D. Richter, Dr. R. Zorn) and the RWTH Aachen (Prof. G. Heger, Prof. G. Roth, Prof. T. Brückel) a laboratory course in neutron scattering.
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 research will be presented. Lectures will be held at Forschungszentrum Jülich and the experimental part will take place at the research reactor FRM II in Garching close to Munich.
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. Forschungszentrum Jülich supports non-local students with free accommodation and half board. Travel stipendia for foreign students are available.
