2010 National School Participants
Purpose: The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate
graduate students on the utilization of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by
researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, will include basic tutorials on the
principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the
application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct four short
experiments at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source and Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source
and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities to provide hands-on experience for using neutron and
Target Audience: Graduate students attending U.S. universities majoring in physics, chemistry,
materials science, or related fields.
Jointly Conducted by: Argonne National Laboratory's Division of Educational Programs, Advanced
Photon Source, and Materials Science Division and Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Neutron
Scattering Science Division.
Scientific Directors: Jonathan C. Lang, Suzanne G.E. te Velthuis, Bryan C. Chakoumakos, and John D. Budai.
How to Apply: Applicants are encouraged to register electronically through the Argonne Division of Educational Programs website at www.dep.anl.gov/nx.
Application Deadline: March 8, 2010
