Autumn School 2013

Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Engineering Materials Science

Diffractometer at DESY

The Autumn School will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of engineering materials. Students and young scientists from research and industry from all of Europe interested in this field are welcome to participate.

The school will take place from October 7 to 11, 2013 in Ammersbek (near Hamburg) and at GEMS/DESY in Hamburg. The focus of the practical training will be on synchrotron experiments. Neutron data analysis will also be practised. Therefore the participants will spend two days doing experiments at GEMS/DESY.

The participation fee of 400 € includes accomodation and food for the duration of the school as well as the book "Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Engineering Materials Science" which has resulted from previous autumn schools with the same title.

Please use the registration form to register and send in parallel an e-mail with a short CV (pdf document, maximum one page, including the status of your education, if applicable the topic of your thesis) to:


Registration deadline (extended): July 15, 2013
Decision about participation: August 1,2013
Payment deadline: August 30, 2013

Payment details will be sent to you when a decision about the participation has been made.
