The 11th LANSCE School on Neutron Scattering: Materials at the Mesoscale, will focus on the influence of surfaces, interfaces, meso- and micro-structure on the functionality of materials. The nine day school will provide an overview and training, through hands-on exercises, of concepts, instrumentation, measuring techniques and data analysis in neutron scattering. Techniques such as: neutron diffraction, small angle neutron scattering, local structure determination, neutron reflectometry together with scanning electron microscopy will be covered.
Students will become familiar with neutron scattering techniques and how they may be utilized to address important questions in materials science. Particular emphasis of this school will address properties that are not exclusively dominated by the atomic structure, but by larger length scales and/or interfaces.
The 11th School is intended primarily for graduate students & post-docs in chemistry, engineering, earth sciences, materials science, physics, and related fields. Students should have a basic understanding of scattering and diffraction phenomena.
The 11th School will cover:
