Welcome to the e-neutrons course page. Here, you can find all the courses available. You can enroll yourself on some of the courses by clicking on the link, other courses are managed by the teacher and you have to apply for a key.

Enjoy learning!

    Available courses

    This course covers "Advanced Topics in Neutron Scattering".  The modules are stand-alone so you can take one or all and in any order you choose. Self-enrolment in this course is allowed.

    We recommend that you complete the introductory course on neutron scattering before attempting to follow this modules in this course.

    Here you will find the e-learning material used in the blended learning course "Neutron Scattering". The classroom sessions are running 8 weeks from April 24th 2017 at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.

    In this course you will learn about the basic techniques used to perform experiments in neutron scattering. Neutron scattering requires large scale facilities, and beam time is expensive. The overall aim of this introductory course is to put you in a better position to work with and make decisions pertaining to experiments at large scale facilities. You may come from a physics background or not, you may be an experienced researcher or not, and you may take this course purely online at your own pace or be part of a face-to-face course that uses only part of the material available here. In any case, we welcome you and hope that you will learn what you need to learn from the material.

    This course is structured such that you are guided through the sequence of activities. When you complete one activity, the next activity will pop-up.

    If you experience any errors, typos and inconsistencies, please report them in the "Forum for error reports" found at the top of the course page. If you have a hard time understanding some of the concepts, you could begin a discussion, or browse through the existing ones, in the "discussion forum". Please share whatever you feel for.



    In this course you will learn about the fundamental properties of muons, how the the experimental apparatus works using the decay of cosmic ray muons as a simple example, and work through a detailed introduction to muon data analysis. The course does not assume a physics background or any study beyond undergraduate level. It can be taken online at your own pace or included in a face-to-face course using some or all of the material here. We hope that it provides a straightforward introduction to muons used as a probe of condensed matter and how to go about analysing muon data.

    This is actually not a course, but rather et collection of hints and guides to provide support for those teachers who would like to create their own course at the e-neutrons platform.

    The Library is where we collect materials from various neutron scools, books and other ressources. It is intended to be expanded by the community so please send any suitable material you come across to us.

    All students and teachers should be enrolled here.

    The HERCULES school provides training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from European and non-European universities and laboratories, in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications).

    It includes lectures, practicals, tutorials, and visits of Large Facilities, particularly ILL and ESRF in Grenoble, France

    The 1-month school is a yearly event, established in 1991, more information available here http://hercules-school.eu/


    The present e-learning course is under construction and contains supplementary material for the HERCULES school.
    If you have permission to edit a course, please consult this course before doing so. Here, you will find manuals and didactical guidelines used throughout this learning environment.
