MATRAC 2 School 2019: Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science with special focus on Fundamental Aspects of Materials

19-03-31 - 19-04-05 All day
"Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft" in Herrsching/Ammersee, Germany
Address: "Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft" in Herrsching/Ammersee, Rieder Str. 70, 82211 Herrsching am Ammersee, Germany

The MATRAC 2 School will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of engineering materials and will focus on neutron scattering and imaging experiments. Students and young scientists from research and industry from all of Europe interested in this field are welcome to participate.

This school starts again with the fundamentals of synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering. In contrast to MATRAC 1, the focus is subsequently shifted towards neutron techniques and their application on specific problems in materials science. Different classes of modern materials are presented and it will be shown how neutron scattering, on the one hand, and synchrotron radiation, on the other hand, can be used to explore the microscopic mechanisms that are responsible for their properties. While fundamental aspects are dominating, application related phenomena will be covered as well.
