CDT-CMP at Oxford School on Neutron Scattering

3 CDT-CMP Students, Lawrence Gammond, Richard Waite and Lauren Cane attended the Oxford School on Neutron Scattering last week.

Congratulations to Lawrence on winning the prize for best mock beamtime proposal.


Originating in Harwell in 1966, the Oxford School on Neutron Scattering offers researchers an introduction to the theory and application of neutron diffraction and spectroscopy. The two week course is led by a team of international experts, who provide a series of lectures and tutorials that cover a variety of topics, including: neutron sources and instrumentation, scattering theory, disordered materials, spectroscopy and reflectometry. In addition to this, a lively social programme is available, which includes a gala dinner, games night and quiz night.
