NNSP-SwedNess Neutron School online

NNSP-SwedNess Neutron School October - November 2021, Online via Zoom



NNSP contains an annual neutron school about neutron scattering for in particular 1st year PhD students.

The goals of the school program are to attract new students and scientists to all fields of neutron-scattering and to facilitate student networking and collaboration between the Nordic universities.

The school is aimed as an introduction for starting Ph.D. students and covers an introduction to neutron scattering, with the topics

  • Principles of scattering and neutron instrumentation
  • Diffraction
  • Small-angle scattering
  • Reflectivity
  • Imaging
  • Inelastic scattering
  • Quasielastic scattering
  • Magnetic diffraction and inelastic scattering
  • Use of polarized neutrons
  • Neutrons at ESS
  • The Grand Societal Challenges addressed with neutrons

The school will take place from 20 October to 05 November 2021 (13 days).
We also offer optional introduction days on 14-15 October on basic wave physics and the use of complex numbers for students not familiar with these concepts.

If you wish to participate, please send an email to Gitte Michelsen (nnsp-adm@nbi.ku.dk) latest 30 September 2021 indicating the following:

  • Full name
  • University
  • Research area
  • Position
  • Reason for participation
  • Whether or not you wish to participate in the introductory days

After we have received your reply, you will receive a confirmation mail together with a link to zoom.)
