16th Oxford School on Neutron Scattering
02 Sep 2019 - 13 Sep 2019 • St Anne’s College, Oxford, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The school is intended primarily for scientists, student and postdoctoral researchers, who are new to the field of neutron scattering. It provides an excellent introduction to the field, which is developed through to its application in contemporary research. Lectures and tutorials covering all aspects of the theory and practice of a variety of neutron scattering techniques will be given by international experts. Students will gain a comprehensive grounding in modern techniques and applications at both steady state and pulsed neutron sources and have the opportunity to hear about the latest research being carried out with the technique. The school has its origins in 1966,as the first one of its kind, and many famous neutron practitioners have attended the schools of the past 50 years.

Lecture — Christmas Lecture: The Physics of a Youth Hostel
17 Dec 2019 • Sarum College, Salisbury, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics – IOP
Abstract:
In my volunteer role as manager of a youth hostel in remote Welsh mountainous terrain, I’ve needed to apply physics to provide the services expected by today’s visitors. There’s no mains water, no landline phone, and no mobile phone signal. Our organisation also has a second hostel which has no mains electricity. The hostels are looked after by a different volunteer warden each week, while I’m 200 miles away in Wiltshire. Everything must be sufficiently reliable to function under those challenging conditions.
Topics:
