  UC Sponsored Lujan Workshop
Applications of Neutron Scattering to Materials and Earth Sciences
Organizers: H. Xu (LANL), S.C. Vogel (LANL), and H.-R. Wenk (UC  

UC Berkeley, December 11 (Saturday), 2010

This workshop is intended for graduate students, postdocs and  
researchers in earth sciences, physics, chemistry, materials science  
and engineering, with an interest in applying neutron scattering to  
studies of synthetic and natural materials. Lectures will be in the  
morning and cover introductions to neutron scattering techniques as  
well as their applications to the above fields. The lectures will be  
complemented by data analysis tutorials in the afternoon for data  
collected at four Lujan instruments - HIPPO, SMARTS, NPDF and FDS.  
Informal discussions with beamline scientists for potential  
collaborations are also available. There is no registration fee.  
Travel subsidies up to $300 per person will be provided for students,  
faculty and researchers from UC Campuses. Thanks to support from  
COMPRES, additional support ($300/person) will be provided to non-UC  
participants. Enrollment is limited to 50 on a first-come first- 
served basis. This workshop is the fourth UC sponsored neutron Lujan  
workshop, following the workshops at UC Davis (1999), Santa Fe  
(2001), and UC Berkeley (2006). To register, please fill out the  
attached form and send it to hxu at lanl.gov and sven at lanl.gov.
