  Tenth National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering Flyer (NXS 2008 Flyer)

Purpose: 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 four short experiments at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source and Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities to provide hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.

Target Audience: Graduate students attending U.S. universities majoring in physics, chemistry, materials science, or related fields.

Jointly Conducted by: Argonne National Laboratory's Division of Educational Programs, Advanced Photon Source, and Materials Science Division and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Neutron Scattering Science Division.

Scientific Directors: Jonathan C. Lang, Suzanne G.E. te Velthuis, and Bryan C. Chakoumakos.
