2012 NXS Participants.
Video Interviews: Participants answer questions about their experiences at NXS 2011.
Your feedback about lectures and experiments is important for evaluating this year’s Neutron and X-ray Scattering School and for making improvements for future participants. We sincerely hope that each of you will complete the survey by the end of the school.
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, 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 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 who are 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 Biology and Soft Matter, Chemical and Engineering Materials, and Quantum Condensed Matter divisions.
Scientific Directors: Jonathan C. Lang, Suzanne G.E. te Velthuis, Bryan C. Chakoumakos, and John D. Budai.
How To Apply: Applicants are encouraged to register electronically through the Argonne Division of Educational Programs website at www.dep.anl.gov/nx.
Application Deadline: applications are closed.
