The Oxford School on Neutron Scattering

The Oxford School on Neutron Scattering is intended for scientists and engineers who are new to the field of neutron scattering. Lectures and tutorials covering the theory and practice of neutron diffraction and spectroscopy are given by international experts. Students will gain a comprehensive grounding in modern techniques and applications at both continuous and pulsed neutron sources and have the opportunity to hear about the latest research being carried out with the technique.


At the school I am giving a lecture on Neutron Instrumentation:

Introduction to Polarized Neutron Scattering Techniques

Even conventional neutron scattering techniques exhibit high sensitivity to magnetic degrees of freedom in condensed matter. This sensitivity can be further enhanced by polarizing the neutron beams used to probe quantum materials. Notably, when the polarization of the scattered beam is analyzed even more subtle effects can be studied. We have given several introductory lectures suitable for master student level and upward at schools and workshops. A particular emphasis is given to the technique of spherical neutron polarimetry, which we helped to develop.

Raciri Summer School 2017

The RACIRI Summer School is a joint initiative by Russia, Sweden and Germany in the collaborative framework of the Röntgen-Angström-Cluster (RAC) and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute (IRI).

We gave an introductory lecture on the use of neutron scattering methods to investigate quantum materials during the Raciri Summer School 2017 held in Ronneby, Sweden.

Further Information on the program and the lecture slides may be found here.
