This school, established in 1994, is primarily addressed to graduate students or post-doctoral with an interest in Neutron Scattering.
The School will include lectures, tutorials, practical and hands-on data analysis sessions, covering various aspects of Neutron Scattering, but with an emphasis on techniques and instrumentation oriented towards the study of short–scale microscopic dynamics, momentum distribution, high energy excitations, high energy neutron imaging and diagnostics.
An international group of recognized experts will constitute the teaching body.
The school will be held at Villa Mondragone, the Conference research Centre of the Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata in Monte Porzio Catone, Rome, Italy. The official language of the school is English.
The School will start on Saturday, September 25th 2010, with a series of in introductory lectures covering the fundamental aspects of neutron scattering and neutron instrumentation. During the next few days, a series of lectures will provide the basis of electronvolt neutron spectroscopy, with particular on new instrumental and data handling techniques.
Practicals will be carried out at the neutron@BTF pulsed neutron source at Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati – INFN.
At the end of the school, students are invited to attend the International workshop: “High–energy neutrons for science and society”, which will be held on October 5th and 6th 2010 at Villa Wolkonsky, the UK ambassador’s residence in Rome.
