The 6th Neutron and Muon School The 6th Neutron and Muon School

Announcement regarding the 6th Neutron and Muon School

The School provides lectures and practical training for newcomers to neutron and muon beam research from across the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and more. The lectures cover most of the basic neutron and muon methodologies applied to material research. In the practical hands-on training, participants will experience actual experiments and data analyses on neutron/muon instruments at J-PARC MLF or JRR-3 with experienced staff.

The School will be held in a hybrid style, with lectures online/on-site and hands-on training on-site, to both minimize the risk of further spread of COVID-19 and maximize the participant’s experience.

The 6th Neutron and Muon School is aimed at graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early-career researchers who are interested in but have limited or no experience with neutron and muon beam-based techniques.
