[cid:image002.png at 01D8AE47.0230C010]This year, a one-week, in person "CHRNS School on Methods and Applications of Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Neutron Reflectivity" will be held on October 17-21, 2022 at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR).

For further information about the summer school go to:

Please note that this year the school will not cover inelastic neutron scattering.

This school provides participants the 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 microns.  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 emphasizes hands-on practical training for the instruments mentioned above as well as a thorough theoretical overview of these measurement techniques.  Applications of these techniques will be illustrated by specific examples drawn from recent cutting-edge research on polymer science, magnetic materials, complex fluids, biology/biophysics, microporous media, and more.  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 Summer School is sponsored by the Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering (CHRNS), jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and NIST. Limited support for graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty will be available.  Attendance will be limited up to 42 participants, and only applicants from North American institutions will be accepted.

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.  Deadline: August 29, 2022.
