17th JCNS Laboratory Course - Neutron Scattering 2013
September 2-13, 2013 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, organizes each year, 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 course consists of two parts: a series of lectures, combined with the opportunity to take part in neutron scattering experiments. The lectures encompass an introduction to neutron sources, along with scattering theory and instrumentation. Furthermore, selected topics of condensed matter research are be presented.
Lectures are held at Forschungszentrum Jülich and the experiments take place at the neutron source FRM II in Garching near Munich.
The laboratory course is part of the curriculum of the University of Münster and the RWTH Aachen.
The aim of the course to give a realistic insight into the experimental technique of neutron scattering and its scientific potential. Forschungszentrum Jülich supports students from out of the area with free accommodation and half-board. Travel stipendia for foreign students are also available.
