The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students in the use of major neutron and X-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry and national laboratories, will include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short experiments at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor, which provides hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.
The School is jointly conducted by Argonne National Laboratory's Communications, Education and Public Affairs Division; Advanced Photon Source and Materials Science Division; and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Biology and Soft Matter Division; Chemical and Engineering Materials Division; and Condensed Matter Division. The School is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences.
