Muon Training School 2012

ISIS Muon Training School - March 2012

ISIS ran a week-long training school on the use of muon spectroscopy starting on 19th March 2012. It included a variety of lectures and workshops on the muon technique given by experienced researchers, and also the chance to perform muon experiments - the best way for the participants to learn how they could best use muons in their own research in future.

Copies of the lecture notes given at the school can be found below in pdf format (please be aware that some of these are several MB in size):
