HPCAT hosts graduate students for the 2017 Neutron and X-ray School


HPCAT hosted a group of eight graduate students as part of the 2017 Neutron and X-ray School on August 10-11, 2017. Beamline scientists, Dr. Changyong Park and Dr. Dmitry Popov, gave hands-on training for high-pressure X-ray diffraction experiment at 16-BM-D 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.
