The MATRAC 1 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 next school is taking place from 2 to 7 September 2018. The venue will be in Lauenburg (near Hamburg) and 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 in Hamburg.

There is the possibility to take an exam to get ECTS credit points.

The MATRAC 1 School is significantly funded by German and Swedish authorities for their respective students. Furthermore, financial support for students from other EU countries is granted within the frame of the SINE2020 Neutron and Muon Advanced Schools. The participation fee amounts to 100 €.

This fee includes board and lodging for the duration of the school as well as the book "Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Engineering Materials Science" which has resulted from previous summer and autumn schools with the same title.

The application form can be found in the navigation bar. Please use this form to apply for the school 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). Please also include a letter of motivation, signed by your supervisor stating his/her contact address.
