The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center will hold its 2011 Neutron School,
July 12-22 at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

This year's theme focusses on the study of materials for energy and
environment research. The school aim at introducing a variety of neutron
scattering techniques to the students and demonstrating how they
complement other analytical methods in elucidating material structure and

Besides introductory lectures on neutron scattering, experts will present
contemporary research on materials related  to materials science aspects
of energy and environmental research Afternoons will be devoted to
hands-on exercises in neutron scattering data analysis (small-angle
scattering, reflectometry, powder diffraction, pair distribution function
analysis, neutron vibrational spectroscopy, radiography).

Candidates should apply at


before April 15. The number of participants is limited to 30. Participants
will be selected on the basis of a statement of interest and two letters
of recommendation. Travel, hotel, and meals will be covered (details on
web site). Participation in the school is open to graduate students and
postdoctoral researchers only. Minorities are encouraged to apply. Address
inquiries to Dr. Luke L. Daemen, lld at lanl.gov  or Dr. Monika A. Hartl,
hartl at lanl.gov

The school is sponsored jointly by the National Sciece Foundation and the
U.S. Department of Energy.
