Registrate for MATRAC summer school 2015

As stated by Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, registration is now open for the MATRAC summer school ‘Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Engineering Materials Science’. The school will be held in Hamburg/Ammersbek, Germany, from September 21 to 25, 2015 in cooperation with the Röntgen-Ångström-Cluster and the Virtual Institute of the Helmholtz Association “New X-ray Analytic Methods in Material Science” (VI-NXMM). Registration deadline is June 24, 2015.

MATRAC I Summer School 2015

The school will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis in applied materials. All relevant experimental methods will be covered in a three-day course followed by a two-day practical. The practical at German Engineering Materials Science Centre (GEMS) located at DESY in Hamburg will cover various diffractometers, SAXS instruments and tomography stations. Neutron data analysis will also be practised.
