Alex Bone, graduate student in the Xue Group, has been selected to attend the Twenty-Third National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering to be held virtually from Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering (NX School) will be held virtually from July 12-30, 2021. The first week of the program will consist of half day lecture sessions, the second and third week will be lectures, remote experiments and data analysis tutorials.
The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students in the use of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short remote experiments at Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor, which provides hands-on experience using neutron and synchrotron sources.
This year’s NX School will be three weeks in length. The first week will consist of half day lecture sessions. The second two weeks will be full-time consisting of lectures and remote experiments.
Jointly Conducted by: Argonne National Laboratory’s, Advanced Photon Source and Materials Science Division, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Neutron Sciences Directorate and Materials Science and Technology Division.
The School is supported by the U. S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences, and Materials Sciences and Engineering Division.
