ISIS Muon Training School - May 2010


ISIS ran a week-long training course in May 2010. Eighteen researchers, mainly post-graduate and post-doctoral workers, came from nine different countries. They were able to hear a variety of lectures and workshops on the muon technique given by experienced researchers. But perhaps the most valuable part of the course was the chance to perform muon experiments - the best way for the participants to learn how they can best use muons in their own research in future.​
