A three-day "Fundamentals of Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) Spectroscopy for Biology and Soft Matter" workshop will be held from October 27th - October 29th, 2021 at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR).

An educational workshop on fundamentals of NSE spectroscopy applied to soft matter and biology, will prepare the scientists for the use of NSE techniques. The basics of static and quasi-elastic neutron scattering, NSE instrumentation and NSE experimental design and data analysis will be covered. In addition, students will select from three interest group sessions on polymers, proteins or lipid membranes. The workshop will prepare participants to use the new, upgraded NSE in the National Institute of Standards and Technology Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) to benefit their research. The workshop is on a "start-to-end" concept which means not only lectures and hands-on exercises but also proposal writing and instrument selection etc. will be covered to engage the participants in a full experience of a NSE project. The workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which includes all local expenses. There will be additional funding available for travel to and from the workshop. Attendance will be limited to 20 participants.

For further information, and/or to apply, please go to https://cns.che.udel.edu/2021-educational-workshop. Early application is advised since attendance is strictly limited.

Deadline: Aug, 15th 2021.
