Uppsala University Course on Neutron Scattering
March 19 - June 21
The course will provide an introduction to neutron scattering methods and exemplify the power of them on current research challenges, and is part of the master program. The course is divided into two parts, the first one addresses scattering in a more general form and includes lab work with x-rays. The second part focuses on the peculiarities of neutrons and the fields where they are particularly strong, soft materials, magnetism and dynamics in the ps range. During the course there will be plenty of time for practical exercises and the exam is writing a scientific proposal, which can later be used for beam time applications.
The course involves lecturers from the neutron research centres as well as an excursion to the French neutron source in Saclay. If you are interested in specific topics only, participation in just those can be arranged. Students from outside Uppsala, PhD students and PostDocs, are welcome as well.
The temporary schedule is attached below. The schedule for the second part is tentative and may change depending on the availability of lecturers.
