2016

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