Muon Training Course 2018
19 Mar 2018



ISIS runs a biennial training schools on how to use muons as a research tool. These include a variety of lectures and workshops on the muon technique given by experienced researchers, and also the chance to perform muon experiments.




The programme runs at ISIS every two years for 5 days and takes around 25 students.  

The next ISIS Muon Spectroscopy Training School will be run 19th - 23rd March 2018

The registration site is and will close on 15th January 2018.

For full details on the course please visit the muon training course homepage

Muons are a valuable and versatile probe of condensed matter. The µSR (muon spin rotation / relaxation / resonance) spectroscopic techniques are used to investigate magnetic, superconducting, semiconducting, molecular, ionic and metallic systems.

The aim of the Muon Spectroscopy Training School is to provide a practical training course for Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers on the use of muons in condensed matter research. 

The cost of the school, accommodation and reasonable travel costs for UK researchers to attend is met by ISIS. We will also cover the costs for European participants. Researchers from outside the UK and Europe have to meet their own tr avel and subsistence costs, although Newton Funding may be available to participants from eligible countries.

Applications and Selection Criteria

The application procedure for the training school is conducted by electronic submission of a form requiring sections to be filled out by the applicant and their supervisor/advisor. 

For further information about the training school please contact Dr Peter Baker (peter.baker[at] directly.

The ISIS Muon Spectroscopy Training School is funded by ISIS.
