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, industr, 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.
