2017 National School on Neutron and X-Ray Scattering

Post Date: April 19th, 2017 | Author: Kate Ross

The 19th National School on Neutron and X-Ray Scattering will begin on August 5th 2017.

From the school’s website:

“The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, 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 Oak Ridge’s Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities to obtain hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.”

CHRNS 2017 Summer School on the Fundamentals of Neutron Scattering

Post Date: April 19th, 2017 | Author: Kate Ross

The twenty-third annual Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering (CHRNS) Summer School will be held at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR), from June 19th to 23rd, 2017.

From the school’s website:

“The school will focus on techniques that employ long wavelength neutrons to achieve high energy resolution, enabling the study of dynamical processes over a wide range of time scales, from ~100 ns to ~1 ps. Participants will have the chance to use three of the following 5 neutron instruments: disk chopper spectrometer (DCS), backscattering spectrometer (HFBS), spin echo spectrometer (NSE), BT7 double focusing triple-axis spectrometer, the multi axis crystal spectrometer (MACS).

The course is targeted at those with little or no previous experience with neutron inelastic scattering methods. The combination of introductory lectures and training in scattering techniques will provide participants with a unique opportunity to become familiar with neutron scattering methods and their application to current research topics.”

International Conference on Neutron Scattering (ICNS) 2017

Post Date: April 19th, 2017 | Author: Kate Ross

The International Conference on Neutron Scattering 2017 (ICNS 2017) will take place in Daejeon, Republic of Korea, at the Daejeon Convention Center from July 9th to 13th, 2017.

From the ICNS 2017 website:

“The ICNS 2017 will be the largest international platform for sharing and exchanging the latest exciting advances in neutron scattering science, which will bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines including physics, biology, chemistry, materials science, engineering materials, earth science, neutron sources and instrumentations. The ICNS is held every four years cycling through Europe, America and Asia-Oceania regions. Previous ICNS includes ICNS2013 (Edinburgh, UK), ICNS2009 (Knoxville, US), ICNS2005 (Sydney, Australia), ICNS2001 (Munich, Germany), ICNS97 (Toronto, Canada), ICNS94 (Sendai, Japan), ICNS91 (Oxford, UK), ICNS88 (Grenoble, France), ICNS85 (Santa Fe, US), and ICNS82 (Hakone, Japan).”

2017 Joint Nanoscience and Neutron Scattering User Meeting at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Post Date: April 19th, 2017 | Author: Kate Ross

The SNS/HFIR User Group and CNMS User Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are holding a joint user meeting from July 31st to August 3rd 2017, at ORNL.  The main meeting days are August 1st and 2nd, which are flanked by two workshop days (July 31 and August 3rd).  Details can be found at the conference website.

Gordon Research Conference on Neutron Scattering 2017

Post Date: April 19th, 2017 | Author: Kate Ross

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC): Structure and Dynamics of Materials on Many Length and Time Scales will be held at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China from August 6-11 2017.  The meeting will be held in conjunction with the “Neutron Scattering” Gordon Research Seminar (GRS).

From the GRC website:

“This GRC will be a forum for discussing how new neutron instrumentation is advancing our understanding of new materials – the materials that will help us address significant challenges and societal needs through the 21st century.

Neutron science impacts a broad range of materials and the GRC sessions will focus on these, including magnetic and superconducting materials, topological materials, polymeric and biological materials, as well as energy-related and engineering materials. Attention will focus on current and cutting edge research problems and how new neutron instrumentation can solve important problems. The Neutron Scattering GRC will also feature an associated GRS to address the needs of a large cohort of young neutron scientists.”

11th LANSCE School on Neutron Scattering: Materials at the Mesoscale

Post Date: November 21st, 2014 | Author: Mark Lumsden

11th LANSCE School on Neutron Scattering: Materials at the Mesoscale, February 18-27, 2015 |

Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, Los Alamos National Laboratory Los Alamos, New Mexico

The 11th LANSCE School on Neutron Scattering: Materials at the Mesoscale, will focus on the influence of surfaces, interfaces, meso- and micro-structure on the functionality of materials. The nine day school will provide an overview and training, through hands-on exercises, of concepts, instrumentation, measuring techniques and data analysis in neutron scattering. Techniques such as: neutron diffraction, small angle neutron scattering, local structure determination, neutron reflectometry together with scanning electron microscopy will be covered.


Gordon Research Conference on Neutron Scattering

Post Date: November 12th, 2014 | Author: Mark Lumsden

Gordon Research Conference on Neutron Scattering
Effect of Disorder and Disordered Materials, June 21-26, 2015, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Neutron Scattering is a new conference series featuring world-leading neutron scattering scientists who will share and discuss their latest discoveries in the GRC (interactive) style. The inaugural conference will focus on the effect of disorder and disordered materials. Disorder is ubiquitous and often strongly influences the properties of a material. For example, small changes in oxygen stoichiometry in pyrochlore materials and other frustrated magnets, can lead to a very different magnetic response. Meanwhile, microalloying is known to dramatically improve the glass forming ability of bulk metallic glasses. The underling physical mechanisms leading to these novel phenomena are subjects of intense debate. Disordered materials encompass glass, liquids, spin glass, quantum liquids, relaxor ferroelectrics, polymers, and bio systems.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 24, 2015
