A one-week "Summer School on Methods and Applications of Neutron
Spectroscopy" will be held June 18-22, 2001 at the NIST Center for
Neutron Research.  For information about the summer school go to

In the lectures and hands-on demonstrations we shall emphasize methods
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. The demonstrations will use four of the
cold neutron instruments (disk chopper spectrometer, backscattering
spectrometer, spin echo
spectrometer and SPINS triple-axis spectrometer), plus the newly
commissioned filter analyzer spectrometer.  The course will be targeted
at those with little or no previous experience with neutron inelastic
scattering methods.

The Summer School is sponsored in part by the National Science
Foundation, and limited support for graduate students, postdocs and
junior faculty will be available.  Attendance will be limited to 32
participants, and preference will be accorded applicants from North
American institutions.

For further information, and/or to apply, please go to

Early application is advised since attendance is strictly limited:
typically we receive many more applications than the maximum number of
