10th Canadian Neutron Summer School
The Canadian Institute for Neutron Scattering will be holding the tenth Neutron Summer School at Chalk River on June 15-19, 2009. The talks and demonstration experiments will be organized by the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre.
The agenda for the week will cover the general concepts of neutron scattering and introduce several specific techniques and areas of application. There will be a strong emphasis on demonstration neutron scattering experiments, conducted at the NRU research reactor at Chalk River.
Topics covered during the lectures include:
The summer school aims to cover the breadth of neutron scattering techniques using thermal neutrons. Each afternoon, Monday-Thursday, demonstration experiments will be available to summer school particpants at the NRU reactor. Experiments planned include:
On Sunday evening there will be a free barbecue at the registration at Ogilvies Cottages for all the attendees of the summer school.
The detailed program will be published shortly.
