Introduction to ISIS and Diamond facilities for CDT students
24th-27th May 2016
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire
Diamond Light Source and the ISIS neutron and muon facility will host a four-day general introduction to these facilities, aimed at first-year PhD students within UK research-council funded Centres of Doctoral Training.
The course will provide an introduction to facilities and techniques, based on the following techniques: Imaging & Tomography; Small Angle Scattering & Disordered Systems; Surfaces, Films & Multilayers; Powder & Single Crystal Diffraction; Electronic & Molecular Spectroscopy; Muon Studies.
The School will be comprised of numerous short introductory talks and selected tutorial/practical sessions, plus evening research seminars given by experienced facility users. It will be suitable for first-year PhD students who have a broad interest in science, and will require no prior experience of the techniques. (Note that ISIS and Diamond provide specialist training in specific techniques, with information available via facility web pages).
