12th Central European Neutron School 

CETS2018 will be held between May 6 and 11 at the Budapest Neutron Centre in Hungary. 

CETS gives insight into neutron research methods and their application in studying the structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Theoretical training and practical work together with a poster section gives good opportunity for the participants to connect their own research with neutrons. PhD students, students and newcomers in this field are welcome.

38th Berlin School on Neutron Scattering

1st - 9th March 2018, Lise Meitner Campus / Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie

A Practical Introduction to Neutron Scattering

The Berlin Neutron School is one of the oldest established neutron schools. It was founded in 1980 by Prof Hans Dachs and is organised by the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB). The aim of the school is to provide an introduction to neutron scattering with an emphasis on hands-on, practical experience using the instruments at the BERII reactor.

11th CETS - SUMMARY

The 11th Central European Training School on Neutron Techniques was held between 8 - 12 May, 2017 by the Budapest Neutron Centre (consortium of MTA Wigner Research Centre for Physics and MTA Centre for Energy Research). The primary aim of the school was to provide insight into the neutron beam based structure analysis of the materials on theoretical, and also practical level.

In this year the school hosted 29 participants (PhD students, post-doc students and researchers) from 13 countries (Argentina, Bulgaria, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Portugal, Russia, Romania, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom), who have shown great interest learning the basics of the theory, practice and data treatment of neutron science.

The 10 hours of theoretical training was given, besides BNC staff, by the researchers from ILL-France, ESS-Sweden, JINR-Russia, and HZB-Berlin. Employing the BNC neutron facilities 15 hours of practical training were conducted focusing on scattering techniques, such as small angle neutron scattering, neutron diffraction, neutron reflectometry, prompt gamma activation analysis and neutron radiography.

On the last day of the school the students presented their own research via short, three minutes talks and posters as well. In the end, they received their well-earned certificates. Special awards were given for the most active participants.


10th CETS - SUMMARY

The jubilee 10th edition of the Central European Training School on Neutron Techniques was organized by Budapest Neutron Centre (Wigner Research Centre for Physics and Centre for Energy Research) between 2nd and 6th of May 2016. The school follows a more than ten-year tradition: at first it was organized every 2-3 years, in recent times annually. The primary aim of the school is to provide insight into the neutron beam based structure analysis of materials. In addition it provided a forum for the attending students to connect their own area of research with the neutron investigation methods.

This year the school hosted 31 participants (PhD students, post-docs, graduate students and researchers) from 18 countries (Argentina, Austria, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, India, Italy, Hungary, Malaysia, Morocco, Portugal, Russia, Romania, Sweden, Taiwan , Turkey, Ukraine ), who have shown strong interest to learn the basics of the theory, practice and data treatment of neutron science.

The 15 hours of theoretical training was given in Budapest Neutron Center (BNC) by researchers from ILL-France, ESS-Sweden, JINR-Russia, and University of Vienna - Austria. Employing the BNC neutron facilities 14 hours of practical training were conducted. As a conclusion to the school, well-earned diplomas were delivered and special awards were given to the most active participants.
