25th JCNS Laboratory Course - Neutron Scattering 2023

Each year, the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University (Prof. T. Brückel, Prof. S. Förster, Prof. K. Friese, Dr. M. Kruteva, Prof. Dr. M. Zobel and Dr. R. Zorn) organizes a laboratory course in neutron scattering with experiments at the neutron scattering facilities of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum MLZ in Garching, Germany.

If you have a BSc (or equivalent) in physics, chemistry, or another natural science, you are welcome to apply to the 25th JCNS Laboratory Course Neutron Scattering. The aim of the course is to give a realistic insight into the experimental techniques of neutron scattering and their scientific potential.

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 facilities of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum in Garching, near Munich.

The laboratory course is part of the curriculum at RWTH Aachen University.

Forschungszentrum Jülich supports students by offering free accommodation and half-board. Travel expenses will also be reimbursed within reasonable limits.
