The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin (HZB) are pleased to announce another instalment of the ANSTO – HZB Neutron School to be held in 2022. This follows the first successful joint school in 2019 and the long tradition of neutron schools being held in Berlin
The aim of the school is to provide a broad overview of new scattering theory and applications to demonstrate the utility of neutron scattering science. The course will consist of lectures and practicals using the neutron beam instruments at the OPAL Multipurpose Reactor. Subjects covered include basic theory, instrumentation, small-angle scattering, reflectometry, deuteration, crystallography and diffraction, imaging, residual stress and strain scanning, inelastic scattering, quasi-elastic scattering, and polarised neutrons. There will also be a demonstration of sample environment equipment and a tutorial on writing proposals. Students will have the opportunity to present their work to fellow participants and ANSTO and HZB staff in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the school poster session.
The school is particularly suited to those who are new to neutron scattering and is aimed at students (Honours, Masters, PhD) and early career researchers. Those encourage to apply are studying in the areas of:
Physics, Chemistry, Material science, Geoscience, Biology, Engineering and cultural Heritage.
