NNSP > NNSP Summerschool

NNSP contains an annual summer school about neutron scattering for in particular 1st year PhD students.

The goals of the school program are to attract new students and scientists to all fields of neutron-scattering and to facilitate student networking and collaboration between the Nordic universities.

The school is aimed as an introduction for starting Ph.D. students and covers an introduction to neutron scattering, with the topics

  • Principles of scattering and neutron instrumentation
  • Diffraction
  • Small-angle scattering
  • Reflectivity
  • Imaging
  • Inelastic scattering
  • Quasielastic scattering
  • Magnetic diffraction and inelastic scattering
  • Use of polarized neutrons
  • Neutrons at ESS
  • The Grand Societal Challenges addressed with neutrons

 The school lasts 12 days (plus optional 2 days of introduction to the relevant math and physics). The school will be held in Tartu (Estonia) from 8. to 22. September 2018.
