Mandatory Intro course for all SwedNess students
Intro course part 1
The Theoretical part (lectures/exercises) will be given together with the Nordic Neutron Science Program (NNSP) through a school in September 9 (or 11)-22, 2017 in Tartu, Estonia.This part will give you 4 ECTS.
The school aims to give the students a introduction to the different fundementals and specific techniques and their applications as you can see in the list below.
|Fundamentals||Specific Techniques & their applications|
|Introduction to the neutron & neutron sources||Atomic & Magnetic Structure (Diffraction)|
|Introduction to Scattering Techniques||Nanostructrures & Interfaces (SANS, NR)|
|Understanding Fouries Space||Dynamics: Materials & Excitations (INS, QENS)|
|Complementary of X-rays with neutrons||Real Space (Imaging & Tomography)|
|Neutron Instrumenation / Sample Environment||Ultra Cold Neutrons|
|Acess to facilites / practical safety issues||Isotope production / Isotope labelling|
Intro course part 2
Includes general practial training at three neutron facilites with hands-on training on different instruments / techniques including also sample preperation (holders etc.), sample environment, fundamental data analysis, safety traning etc. Each student should hand in a report on the work performed during this traning with a specific focus on how this can be applied on his/her own PhD-project. The Hands-on training giving another 4 ECTS.
