Event Details

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).

Eligibility

The course will be open to any student registered with a UK research council funded CDT with priority given to those from CDTs for which Diamond or ISIS have agreed to provide student training.

Course fees and accommodation

The cost of the course is £120 plus VAT (payable by invoice to the affiliated CDT). This will include lunches and evening meals. Delegates will have to arrange and pay for their own accommodation and transport.  We have reserved a number of rooms at local accommodation venues for students to book.

Students who would like to attend the course should discuss this with their CDT coordinator and then complete the individual on-line application form. This will include important information that will allow us to select the students who we believe will benefit most from the course.
 
No accommodation should be booked before the student has received confirmation of acceptance, which we aim to send out by 24/2/2016.
 
Course material will be available on-line for all attending students, and any other UK-funded PhD students who register for on-line access.
