Organized by Forschungszentrum Jülich in cooperation with RWTH Aachen
Each year, the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University (Prof. T. Brückel, Prof. S. Förster, Prof. G. Roth, and Dr. R. Zorn) organizes a laboratory course in neutron scattering with experiments at the neutron scattering facilities of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum MLZ.
The course consists of two parts: a series of lectures, combined with the opportunity to take part in neutron scattering experiments. The lectures encompass an introduction to neutron sources, along with scattering theory and instrumentation. Furthermore, selected topics of condensed matter research are be presented.
Lectures are held at Forschungszentrum Jülich and the experiments take place at the neutron facilities of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum in Garching near Munich.
The laboratory course is part of the curriculum at the RWTH Aachen.
The aim of the course to give a realistic insight into the experimental techniques of neutron scattering and their scientific potential.
Forschungszentrum Jülich supports students coming from outside the Aachen area by offering free accommodation and half-board. Travel expenses will also be reimbursed within reasonable limits.
