The next ISIS practical Muon Training School will be held on the 18th-22nd March 2024 at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. This residential school will offer participants the chance to attend a range of lectures and workshops delivered by experienced researchers, along with the opportunity to perform hands on muon experiments at the ISIS pulsed muon source. Applications to attend the school are now invited, with the deadline for submissions Monday January 15th at noon GMT.
Muons are a valuable and versatile probe of condensed matter. The µSR (muon spin rotation / relaxation / resonance) spectroscopic techniques are used to investigate magnetic, superconducting, semiconducting, molecular, ionic and metallic systems. We encourage all PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are interested in learning more about muon techniques to apply. Selection of participants will be made based on applicants demonstrating their motivation to attend the school via our online application form.
The cost of the school, food and accommodation, as well as reasonable travel expenses, will be covered for participants from the UK and ISIS partner nations (Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, and Sweden). There will also be funding available to cover the cost of the school and food for participants from other nations.
Please feel free to contact the organisers with any queries.
