XII School of Neutron Scattering (SoNS)
“Francesco Paolo Ricci”
“Introduction to the theory and techniques of neutron scattering and
applications to Cultural Heritage”
30 April – 9 May 2014
A Course within the International School of Solid State Physics
ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC
CULTURE<http://www.ccsem.infn.it/>, Erice (I)
Application deadline: 1st April 2014
Application is now open for the XII School of Neutron Scattering (SoNS)
“Francesco Paolo Ricci”: Introduction to the theory and techniques of
neutron scattering and applications to Cultural Heritage. The school
will be held at the ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC
CULTURE<http://www.ccsem.infn.it/>, Erice (Sicily, I) as a specialized
course within the International School of Solid State Physics (Director:
Giorgio Benedek), between the 30th April and the 9th of May 2014
The course is normally highly oversubscribed, so we encourage applicants
to apply early, as late applications will not be accepted. Students are
selected for the course based on their need to utilize neutron
scattering techniques as part of their present and/or future research
The school provides an excellent introduction to neutron scattering
which is developed through to its application in contemporary research.
As such, it is ideally suited to graduate students and postdoctoral
researchers. The school consists mainly of lectures and tutorials
covering both the theory and technical aspects of neutron scattering
with a particular emphasis on applications to Cultural Heritage. In
addition to lectures on theory, sources, and neutron instrumentation,
students will be tutored by world leading experts in the various
scattering techniques including diffraction, quasi-elastic and inelastic
scattering, imaging, small-angle scattering, reflectometry, and
Accommodation of participants is organized by the Ettore Majorana
Foundation<http://www.ccsem.infn.it/> (EMFCSC) either in their premises
or in local hotels on the basis of the indications provided by the
Organizing Committee and by participants in the Travel Form. Special
