PSI Course for Master students: introducing photons, neutrons and muons for condensed matter physics and materials science
15 Jun 2020 - 19 Jun 2020 • PSI Villigen, Switzerland
Organizer:
Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland
Abstract:
The course runs for one week in June (15th to 19th). It takes place at the campus of the Paul Scherrer Institute. The morning consists of introductory lectures on the use of photons, neutrons and muons for materials characterization. The afternoon consists of tours of the large scale facilities as well as in-depth visit to selected instruments. he aim of the course is that the students acquire a basic understanding on the interaction of photons, neutrons and muons with matter and how one can use these as tools to solve specific problems on condensed matter and materials research.
Topics:
Interaction of photons, neutrons and muons with matter, Production of photons, neutrons and muons, Experimental setups: optics and detectors, Crystal symmetry, Bragg’s law, reciprocal lattice, structure factors, Elastic and inelastic scattering with neutrons and photons X-ray absorption spectroscopy, x-ray magnetic circular dichroism, Polarized neutron scattering for the study of magnetic materials, Imaging techniques using x-rays and neutrons, Introduction to muon spin rotation, Applications of muon spin rotation

PSI Powder diffraction school
14 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • PSI Villigen, Switzerland
Organizer:
Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland
Abstract:
Powder-diffraction methods have demonstrated an ever increasing range of applications in materials science, chemistry, physics, life sciences and engineering. Modern synchrotron-radiation methods not only provide data of exceptional quality, but have allowed researchers to perform previously inaccessible experiments. Along with determining the atomic structure and the relative abundance of crystalline phases in bulk samples, information on disordered materials, microstructural features, defects and their evolution in response to external stimuli over a wide range of timescales is now possible. The school, to be held at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland, will give a broad overview of all the modern possibilities using synchrotron radiation, starting with a general theoretical introduction to the various methods and applications.
