[cid:image002.png at 01D7EB4F.299BD060]The 27th CHRNS School on Methods and Applications of Neutron Spectroscopy will be held virtually on January 28, 31, and February 2, 4, 7, 9, and 11, 2022 by the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR).

We have extended the application deadline to midnight Thursday Dec 9, 2021

For further information about the summer school go to:

Please note that this year the school will not cover Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Neutron Reflectometry.

This school provides participants the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of neutron scattering techniques that utilize instruments at NIST including the disk chopper spectrometer (DCS), backscattering spectrometer (HFBS), BT-7 double focusing triple-axis spectrometer, multi-axis crystal spectrometer (MACS), neutron spin echo spectrometer (NSE) and neutron diffraction. These powerful experimental techniques are used by researchers in a variety of scientific disciplines to probe the dynamics of materials over time scales ranging from 1 ps to 100 ns with length scales from under 1 nm to over 100 nm. This school emphasizes hands-on practical training for the instruments mentioned above as well as a thorough theoretical overview of these measurement techniques.  Applications of dynamical techniques will be illustrated by specific examples drawn from recent cutting-edge research on soft and hard condensed matter systems.  The course will enable attendees to assess the applicability of the techniques to their own research and will provide the technical information needed to prepare effective beam time proposals.

The School is sponsored by the Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering (CHRNS), jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and NIST.  Attendance will be limited to no more than 40 participants.  Graduate students, postdocs, junior faculty, national lab. and industrial scientists are encouraged to apply this year.  Only applicants from North American institutions will be considered.

For further information, and/or to apply, please go to:  https://www.nist.gov/ncnr/chrns/education-and-outreach/chrns-summer-school-neutron-scattering

Early application is advised since attendance is strictly limited and typically we receive more applications than the maximum number of participants.  EXTENDED Application Deadline: December 9, 2021.
