Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK

Description

To mark 30 years of muon science at ISIS and the recent retirement of our first dilution fridge, delivered by TBT in March 1992, we will be holding a symposium discussing µSR studies at low temperatures. Sessions on superconductivity, heavy fermion systems, frustrated systems and magnetism are planned, and speakers will include Roberto de Renzi, Tom Lancaster, Fabrice Bert, Pietro Carretta, Pierre Dalmas de Reotier, Adroja and Steve Blundell.

There will also be an ISIS Facility User Meeting on the Monday afternoon, providing a chance to hear the latest news about our proposed MuSR upgrade and our ongoing project to provide new low temperature sample environment. Also planned is an informal session giving students an opportunity to present their PhD work in a few minutes – all students will get the chance to speak!

All are welcome to attend. For UK-based academics full costs will be covered; otherwise we are happy to pay local costs associated with the meeting.

22. November 2016 - 26. November 2016 NMS2016, Tokai - The 9th AONSA/The 2nd Neutron and Muon SchoolLocation

J-PARC (Tokai, Japan)

Description

The School provides training for newcomers to neutron and muon beam research from across the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and more. In addition to lectures, practical sessions are included with hands-on experiments and data analysis. All neutron techniques are generally covered, with emphasis on powder diffraction, single-crystal diffraction, strain scanning, small-angle scattering, reflectometry, inelastic and quasielastic scattering, and neutron imaging.

The School will be held at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of J-PARC. J-PARC is one of Japan’s flagship research facilities and is unique in the world in the range and performance of accelerator-based capabilities. MLF, located at the heart of J-PARC, is one of the world’s leading centers for pulsed neutron and muon beam based research.

JRR-3, which has been the center of neutron facility in Japan for a long time, is just in a walking distance from MLF. It is still under inspection after the big earthquake in 2011 so we will just visit it to study various neutron instruments.

The 9th AONSA Neutron School/The 2nd Neutron and Muon School is aimed at post-graduate students and early-career researchers who are interested in, but have limited or no experience with neutron and muon beam based techniques.

The School will consist of introductory lectures on neutron and muon science and the application of neutron and muon beams in research. It will also include hands-on experience using the MLF instruments and instruction in data analysis.

14. March 2016 - 18. March 2016 MSTS2016 - ISIS Muon Spectroscopy Training SchoolLocation

ISIS, Didcot, UK

Description

ISIS runs training schools on how to use muons as a research tool. These include a variety of lectures and workshops on the muon technique given by experienced researchers, and also the chance to perform muon experiments.

Registrations for the 2016 school closed on January 6th and applicants have been informed of their results. Materials from the school will be available online as soon as possible after the school finishes.

Muons are a valuable and versatile probe of condensed matter. The µSR (muon spin rotation / relaxation / resonance) spectroscopic techniques are used to investigate magnetic, superconducting, semiconducting, molecular, ionic and metallic systems.

The aim of the Muon Spectroscopy Training School is to provide a practical training course for Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers on the use of muons in condensed matter research.

Organised with the support of the European Union 7th Framework Programme, this will be a joint meeting between the Accelerator Applications Network of EuCARD2 and the Muon Joint Research Activity within the Neutron and Muon Integrated Infrastructure Initiative.

The aim of the meeting is to bring together scientists and engineers involved in the development and application of accelerator-based muon sources to discuss and exchange ideas about the requirements for future facilities.

The meeting will consider new technologies required for the production of novel muon beams, such as Ultra Slow beams and the Muon Microscopes, while taking a forward look to new applications of muon techniques in academia and industry.

The meeting will start with lunch on Monday 12th January, finishing early afternoon the following day.

Registration is free and is available before 1st December, 2014.

Delegates are asked to make their own accommodation arrangements – local hotels include Premier Inn (where a few rooms have been reserved for this meeting) and Travelodge (both located close to the University campus). The Campus is within easy reach of the motorway network, Leeds Bradford and Manchester airports and main rail links.
