Description

Theme 2011 - Probing Phase Transitions using Photons, Muons and Neutrons

Phase transitions are not only a well known fact of everyday life, but also an important field of current research and of technological applications. In this Summer School, more than 20 world-class experts will introduce the different aspects of phase transitions from an experimental and theoretical point of view. Following the school, a practical training at PSI will allow approx. 25 students to gain hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation using photons, neutrons, and muons.

 

It is the very first time that the PSI Summer School will be held in Zug - on the premises of the Institut Montana Zugerberg (international boarding school), Zug, Switzerland.

As in the 2 previous years, the PSI Summer School offers again a twofold educational program with the school in Zug followed by hands on training at the PSI Facilities in Villigen. The practical training will be available for approximately 20 students. The transfer from Zug to Villigen will take place on Friday, August 19, 2011.
