34th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering (13th to 21st March 2014)


34th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering (13th to 21st March 2014)

We are pleased to announce that 'The 34th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering' will be held from 13th to 21st March 2014, at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin in Germany.

The school program consists of three days of lectures giving a theoretical introduction to the fundamentals of neutron scattering and the principles of various neutron scattering techniques. After the lectures, there will be three and a half days of hands-on experiments on seven different neutron scattering instruments. The students will be divided into groups of four to five people from similar subject areas and will do triple-axis spectroscopy, powder diffraction, small angle scattering, reflectometry, time-of-flight spectroscopy, tomography and residual stress analysis under the guidance of experienced scientists. The school will finish with lectures on how to use neutron scattering as a tool for research in the areas of biology, chemistry, engineering and physics etc. This course is part of the curriculum of the Faculty of Mathematics and Sciences at the Technical University Berlin.
