Prof. Yukio Noda (Tohoku Univ):
"Introduction of Neutron and X ray scattering (mainly neutron) for material science"

Neutron source (Reactors and Pulsed sources)
Important characters of neutrons for materials science, such as lights atom, magnetic moments, scale of energy and (measurements of phonon and magnon), large penetration depth and so on.
Basic explanation of neutron science, such as diffraction, inelastic scattering, radiography, rapid prompt gamma-ray
Principle of diffraction (Bragg scattering)

"Introduction of X-ray scattering, in particular, dynamics investigations"

Generation of X-ray (Difference of Synchrotron Radiation X-ray and Lab. Instruments)
Basic lecture of X-ray diffraction, mainly Synchrotron Radiation X-ray (diffraction, inelastic scattering, resonant X-ray scattering RIXS, XAFS)
What we can do using Synchrotron Radiation X-ray
Imortance of Dynamics investigations by Synchrotron Radiation X-ray
What is the difference from neutrons scattering: advantage of X-ray, and complementarity investigations.

Importance of structure investigation in material science
Basic lecture of diffractometer and real diffraction experiments
Analysis of crystal and magnetic and crystal structure
Rietveld technique, Fourier transfer technique, PDF, Representaion analysis of magnetic structures
Some examples of investigations of material science in which structure refinements play important roles.
