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”.
