25th National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering

The main purpose of NXS is to educate graduate students in the use of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short in-person experiments at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor and virtual or hybrid experiments at Argonne’s Advanced Photon source, which provide hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.
