A one-week "Summer School on Methods and Applications of Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Reflectometry" will be held from June 19 - June 23, 2018 at the NIST Center for Neutron Research. For information about this summer school please go to http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/summerschool/ss18/.

This school provides students an opportunity to learn about small angle neutron scattering (SANS), and neutron reflectometry (NR) at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). These powerful experimental techniques are used by researchers in a variety of scientific disciplines to probe the microstructure of materials at length scales ranging from 1nm to 20 μm. The NCNR is home to world-class SANS, USANS (Ultra Small Angle Neutron Scattering), VSANS and NR instruments, which are available to all qualified researchers through the NCNR's anonymous, peer review proposal system.

This school focuses on hands-on experimental training in the use of SANS, USANS, and NR, while still providing a thorough theoretical overview of these measurement techniques. Applications of SANS, USANS and NR will be illustrated using examples drawn from recent cutting-edge research in polymer science, complex fluids, microporous media, and more. The school will enable attendees to assess the applicability of the techniques to their own research and will provide technical information needed to prepare effective experiment proposals. 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 35 participants, and only applicants from North American institutions will be accepted.

For further information and/or to apply, please visit the summer school website http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/summerschool/ss18. Early application is advised since attendance is strictly limited. Typically, the applications received greatly exceed the maximum number of participants. Application Deadline: April 2nd, 2018.
