Diamond Light Source and the ISIS neutron and muon facility will host a one-week general introduction to these facilities, aimed at first-year PhD students within UK research-council funded Centres of Doctoral Training.

The course will cover a basic introduction to facilities and techniques, based on the following key themes: Imaging & Tomography Small Angle Scattering & Non-crystalline Matter Surfaces, Films & Multilayers Powder & Single Crystal Diffraction Electronic & Molecular Spectroscopy Muon Studies.

The course will include 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 an interest in all of the themes, and will require no prior experience of the techniques.
