CHRNS Summer School on Neutron Scattering


Logo for Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering





Maximizing access for the scientific community to transformative neutron scattering instrumentation


The 26th Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering (CHRNS) "School on Methods and Applications of  Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Neutron Reflectometry" originally planned for June 1-5, 2020, will be held virtually, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, February 3 -12, 17, and 19, 2021. This school is devoted to methods and applications of small angle neutron scattering (SANS) and neutron reflectometry (NR) techniques.  Please note that inelastic neutron scattering techniques will not be covered in this school.

The course is targeted at those with little or no previous experience with neutron scattering methods. The combination of introductory lectures and training in scattering techniques will provide participants with a unique opportunity to become familiar with neutron scattering and its application to current research topics.

Attendance for the school is limited to 36 students and to people affiliated with North American universities and US industry.

The course includes both lectures and hands-on training in data reduction and analysis.

The school is sponsored by the NCNR and by the National Science Foundation under the Center for High Resolution Neutron Scattering(CHRNS)
