Shin Selected for National School on Neutron, X-ray Scattering

MSE graduate student Sang Hak Shin, advised by MSE Professor and Chair Robert M. Briber, has been selected to attend the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering. The competitive, all-expenses-paid, two-week program will be held at Argonne National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory from September 24 to October 11.

The program's goal is to educate graduate students on the use of major neutron and x-ray facilities in their research. It includes lectures presented by scientists from academia, industry, and the government on scattering principles and the characteristics of sources, and seminars on the use of various scattering techniques. Students will also conduct four hands-on experiments at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source in Illinois, and at Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities in Tennessee.
