The observational window provided by high–energy (eV to MeV) neutrons offers unique possibilities as a local probe for the exploration of materials at the nanoscale. The inverse geometry spectrometer VESUVIO operating on the ISIS pulsed neutron source has pioneered Deep Inelastic Neutron Scattering (DINS) measurements of the momentum distribution of light atoms in condensed matter systems. These measurements provide a probe of the local structure of the materials and biomaterials as well as information on the dynamics of the atoms.
This is the V edition of a series of workshops addressing the PERSPECTIVES IN NEUTRON SPECTROSCOPY AT HIGH ENERGIES and follows the I and II editions held at Cosener House in May 1995 and October 1998, the III edition held in Santa Fe (New Mexico, US) in April 2005, and the IV edition held in Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2006.
Lectures are intended for experts and PhD students attending the X SCHOOL OF NEUTRON SCATTERING “FRANCESCO PAOLO RICCI”.

Aim of the School
This school, established in 1994, is primarily addressed to graduate students or postdoctoral with an interest in Neutron Scattering. The School will comprise lectures, tutorials, practicals and hands-on data analysis sessions, covering diverse aspects of Neutron Scattering, but with an emphasis on techniques and instrumentation designed to study the : Microscopic Dynamics of Simple and Hydrogen-bonded Quantum Fluids, Quantum Momentum Distributions, Effective Born-Oppenheimer Potentials, High Energy Excitations, High Energy Neutron Imaging, Deep Inelastic neutron scattering , High Energy Neutron Irradiation Effects.
The School will start on Saturday, September 25th 2010, with a series of in introductory lectures covering the fundamental aspects of neutron scattering and neutron instrumentation. During the next days, a series of lectures will provide the basis of electronvolt neutron spectroscopy, with particular on new instrumental and data handling techniques.
Practicals will be carried out at the neutron@BTF pulsed neutron source at Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati – INFN.
At the end of the school, students are invited to attend the International workshop: “High-energy neutrons for science and society “, which will be held on October 5th and 6th 2010 at Villa Wolkonsky, the UK ambassador’s residence in Rome.
Seminar: Coloring the noise or cheating one’s way to quantum effects
16th April 2010 – 15:00
Prof. Michele Parrinello (Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences, ETH Zürich, Via Giuseppe Buffi 13, USI Campus, 6900 Lugano, Switzerland)
Aula G2C – Facoltà di Scienze Matematiche, Fisiche e Naturali, Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata”
We use a generalized form of Langevin equation in which the noise is correlated (colored) rather then being white to devise a number of very powerful sampling methods. After revising the theory that is behind our approach, we show how one can model the noise to achieve optimal sampling in ordinary and in ab-initio (Car-Parrinello) molecular dynamics. Most remarkably our sampling method can be used to introduce quantum effect at zero additional cost with respect to a standard simulation.
