5th LANSCE Neutron School on "Magnetism in bulk and Nanostructured

The 5th LANSCE Neutron School will take place between July 23-August 1, 2008
at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico.

The focus of the 5th LANSCE Neutron Scattering School is on "Magnetism in
bulk and Nanostructured Materials" investigated by neutron elastic and
inelastic scattering. Detailed information is available at:
Application for the school is currently open and must be submitted via the
school's website before April 11, 2008.

This year's school is designed to be of interest to graduate level Ph.D.
students and postdocs and will emphasize the novel properties of magnetism
in bulk and nanostructured materials.  The school is designed to provide an
expansive knowledge of neutron scattering particularly from magnetic
materials, to illustrate applications of neutron scattering to solve modern
problems, and to provide hands-on opportunities to collect and analyze
neutron scattering data.

Experiments will feature small angle neutron scattering, polarized neutron
reflectometry, inelastic scattering, and elastic scattering including
diffraction and total (pair distribution) scattering. Lectures will be
presented by world recognized experts in the field and will span all levels
from introductory concepts to advanced magnetic systems and techniques.

The school is limited to 30 participants who will be selected from their
application materials including a reference letter and a statement of "why
neutron scattering could be (is) relevant to my research." Applicants should
be full time graduate students or postdocs in an appropriate discipline
related to magnetism. Industrial researchers and advanced undergraduate
students are also invited to apply.  Applicants need not be U.S. citizens;
however, preference will be given to students attending North American

The LANSCE neutron scattering school is supported by the National Science
Foundation and the Department of Energy.  The school is tuition-free and
assistance for travel, lodging and subsistence is available.
