Outline and Purpose of the Course Neutrons are very powerful and useful tool for advanced science and technology. In particular, low-energy neutrons which are called thermal or cold neutron are well used not only for static and dynamic structure analysis by scattering, but also quantitative elemental analysis by irradiation. In the course, we offer the structures and characteristics of the research reactor and spallation neutron source,respectively. We also offer lectures on the latest trends in basic physics research and material and life science research, and neutron imaging research.

Course Goals ・To understand generation of low-energy neutrons and their application.
Schedule and Contents 1-2: Outline to application of neutron beam and irradiation,

3-4: Neutron facilities (research reactors and spallation neutron sources)

5-6: Neutron optics and the application for basic physics research

7-9: Introduction to neutron scattering

10-13:Application of life science with neutron scattering

14-15: Neutron imaging and their application.
Evaluation Methods and Policy Evaluation will be based on active participation (40points) and an assignment report (60points) . The active participation includes small quizzes related the lectures. Assignments and individual reports will be assessed on the basis of achievement level for course goals.
Course Requirements None
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) Before the lecture: Interest in radiation utilization and understand basics of radiation measurement
After the lecture: Communicates with faculty members by PandA.
