2015 PSI Summer School on Condensed Matter Research (14th edition)

Spectroscopy with Neutrons, Muons and Photons

August 15-21, 2015 (lectures)
August 22-23, 2015 (practical sessions)

Lyceum Alpinum, Zuoz, Switzerland


The PSI summer schools on condensed matter physics have a long standing tradition. Based on the previous schools on neutron scattering starting back in 1992 the PSI summer schools aim to train young researchers in the methods being used at large scale facilities such as neutron and muon sources or synchrotron photon sources.

International experts and PSI staff members will introduce and deepen your knowledge not only on methods but also on those phenomena, which are presently at the forefront of modern solid state physics and chemistry.

Following the school a practical training is offered at PSI. It will allow a limited number of participants to get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation using photons, neutrons, and muons.
