1st PSI Summer School on Condensed Matter Research
10 - 17 Agust 2002, Lyceum Alpinum, Zuoz, Switzerland
The purpose of the Summer School is to give participants an introduction to
the basic principles of magnetism and magnetic materials. The lectures will
cover both, theoretical and experimental aspects, with particular emphasis
on the utilization of the prominent experimental techniques available at
PSI: neutrons, muons, and synchrotron light.
No previous knowledge of the subject is required, but an honours degree in
natural sciences (equivalent to diploma) is essential. The program of the
school will include exercises to deepen the accumulated knowledge as well as
poster and discussion sessions in which the participants can present their
own results in the field of magnetism and magnetic materials.
