Muon Training School 2018
19 Apr 2018







ISIS ran a week-long training school on the use of muon spectroscopy in March 2018. 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 use muons in their own future research.

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):
