Anthony toured the X-ray and neutron scattering facilities at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Lab's this August.
The National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is a two week boot camp featuring the World's top facilities on scattering techniques. The purpose of this school is to educate graduate students and young professionals on what these facilities can offer, how to write user proposals, and seduce new users.
It was a fun and busy trip filled with great science and friends. There are many techniques that may benefit the study of systems chemistry--talk to Anthony if you want to learn more!
