Friday's lecture & Practical slides

Practical session

3-hour session using computers -

"After a short introduction to Monte-Carlo techniques, the McStas software will be presented [www.mcstas.org], as well as typical usage examples (40 min). Each participant will then start with a simple neutron diffractometer model and be invited to perform 'virtual experiments', choosing a proper monochromator setting, viewing the instrument, studying powder samples, etc ... (2 hours). Only basic knowledge in physics is required. McStas will run from LiveDVD's and USB keys (compatible with most computers)."
