Greg Vetterick and Chris Barr have been invited to attend the Atomic-Level Response of Materials to Irradiation Summer School in Santa Fe, NM from June 20-25.

According to the program website, “The school aims to inform and educate students in the area of radiation effects in materials, with emphasis on atomic-level phenomena. The one-week-long curriculum will cover a range of topics: fundamentals of bonding, crystal structures, defects, and interfaces relevant to nuclear reactor materials; atomistic modeling and materials characterization methods; sources of energetic particles, physics of ion stopping, collision cascades, and radiation-induced defect formation, defect diffusion, and clustering; and influence of radiation damage on the structure, dimensional changes, and properties (e.g., radiation-induced phase transformation, hardening, embrittlement, creep, voids, swelling).”

Steven Spurgeon has been invited to attend the joint Argonne National Lab – Oak Ridge National Lab X-Ray & Neutron Summer School from June 12-26.

According to Argonne, “The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, will include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short experiments at Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source and Oak Ridge’s Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor facilities to provide hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.”
