NFYK12004U Applications of X-ray and Neutron Scattering in Biology, Chemistry and Physics
Introduction to neutron and X-ray large-scale facilities and the possibilities they offer.
Introduction to scientific concepts in biology and biochemistry, materials chemistry, soft and hard condensed matter
Basic knowledge of X-ray and neutron scattering theory
Scattering methods including examples from science
Hands-on experiments including proposal writing, data analysis and presentation of data
The evaluation will be based on the level of understanding the student displays during the oral presentation and through the written report. It is important to have a concrete knowledge of the basic concepts of scattering as well as of the experimental process and data analysis.
Understanding in how large X-ray and neutron research facilities can be used for the study of a variety of materials ranging from proteins and polymers to semiconductors and cements.
This course shall provide the students with a competent background for further studies using scattering techniques, i.e. M.Sc. project or PhD thesis. After passing the course, the student should be able to participate in the setup and execution of a scattering experiment as well as perform data analysis and report on the results .
Lecture notes plus provided articles and book chapters.

A new report must be written. Contact the course responsible if you did not participate in the experiments in order to arrange new experiments.
The requirements for participation cannot be ignored. Students who do not meet the requirement should therefore follow the course again the following year.
