This is a new theoretical school taking place at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire) on August 15th – 23rd 2019. It is a first of this type since the 1998 Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics held at St Andrews University.
You will have the unique opportunity to learn about the advanced theory and practice of the musr technique and its uses in studying material properties through a variety of lectures and tutorials given by international experts and pioneer researchers. You will also have the chance to visit the ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Facility.
Topics covered during the school include: magnetic materials, superconductors, energy materials, semiconductors, molecular materials, studies of thin films and interfaces, reaction kinetics, muon spectroscopy under Extreme Environments, muon site determination & DFT.
