Utting/Ammersee and Garching/Munich, GermanyDescription
MATRAC 2 Winter School ‘Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science with special focus on Fundamental Aspects of Materials’
The Winter School will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of materials. The school starts with the fundamentals of synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering. The focus is subsequently shifted towards neutron techniques and their application to specific problems in materials science. Different classes of modern functional materials are presented and it will be shown how neutron scattering, on the one hand, and synchrotron radiation, on the other hand, can be used to explore the microscopic mechanisms that are responsible for their properties. While fundamental aspects are dominating, application related phenomena will be covered as well.
After a two-day theoretical course in Utting/Ammersee the participants will spend two days at the FRM II in Garching (near Munich) doing practicals. The fifth day of the school offers further talks and a final discussion. All relevant experimental methods will be covered.Organiser
