The Neutron Lifecycle Lecture Series aims at exposing the diversity of scientific and engineering challenges associated with the SNS and HFIR neutron scattering facilities. The lectures will follow neutrons from their release by nuclei to their interaction with samples and detectors to their ultimate fate as a colorful pixel in a scientific publication. The lectures will cover original technical topics of broad interest for research and technical staff at all levels from undergraduate student to division head. These lectures are inspired by Neutrons from Cradle to Grave, a lecture series held at the ILL in 2010 to broaden the “neutron culture” of its graduate students. Talks are approximately 25-35 min per speaker with questions from the audience encouraged.
Speakers' slides will be posted on this website after each lecture. Materials can be found at the bottom of this page.
