Neutrons in Soft Matter Science: Complex Materials on Mesoscopic Scales

More information about the course can be found in the NSMS Workshop flyer.

The new cyber-enabled collaborative graduate course "Neutrons in Soft Matter Science: Complex Materials on Mesoscopic Scales" launches in fall semester of 2013. It addresses a wide range of topics in neutron scattering for soft matter physics and materials science. Also covered in part are complementary light and X-Ray scattering approaches to the study of soft matter. With contributed lectures from sixteen universities/institutions, the course will provide a unique and seminal introduction to this field. Access to the course lectures can be made through live interactive sessions using the Adobe Connect platform or via session recordings that are streamed subsequently from this site.
