2016 Neutron and X-ray School

HPCAT hosted a group of eight graduate students August 9-10, 2016, as part of the 2016 Neutron and X-ray School.  Beamline scientists, Dr. C. Park and D. Popov, gave hands-on training for high-pressure X-ray diffraction experiment using a diamond anvil cell and a practical guide to the data analysis to the students during the two-day classes.

The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering  is to educate graduate students in the use of major neutron and X-ray facilities. Students conduct short experiments at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor, which provides hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.
