The Croucher Summer Course on Neutron Scattering, a 5-day intensive course, is an introduction to neutron scattering aimed at postgraduate students and early-career researchers. Building on the success of prior summer courses, the 2018 Croucher Summer Course on Neutron Scattering will continue to focus on fundamental scattering theory and hands-on data analysis.  The techniques to be covered include diffraction, small angle scattering, quasielastic neutron scattering, and inelastic neutrons scattering.

The last few decades have brought about tremendous advances in neutron scattering sources and instrumentation. This includes the new China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) in Dongguan, about 60 miles north of Hong Kong.  CSNS produced its first neutrons at the end of August, 2017.  Three Day-1 instruments are being commissioned and the first scientific paper is already in press.  This summer course will be a rare chance for students to become familiar with the techniques that will be employed there.

The registration fee for the summer course is $3000 HKD ($400 USD), which includes a hotel room (based on double occupancy), five days of lunches, lecture notes, and the final day excursion.  The students are responsible for their own travel expenses and incidentals.

For more information and to apply, please visit https://projects.croucher.org.hk/summer-courses/neutron-scattering-a-powerful-method-for-materials-research-2.  In the box for personal statement, please describe your research plan, and indicate how neutron scattering can be applied in your research. Be sure to include sufficient details so that the selection committee to make an informed decision.  The deadline for application is May 25.

The 2018 summer course will be followed immediately by two other special events: the 13th International conference on quasielastic neutron scattering (QENS), and the 8th Workshop on inelastic neutron scattering (WINS), also at City University of Hong Kong.  These conferences provide the students opportunities for continuing learning, especially for those who are interested in applying quasielatic and inelastic neutrons scattering techniques.  For more information on QENS and WINS, please visit, http://qens-wins2018.com.

Limited scholarships are available to support students who are in genuine need.
