Season 2 (2015-2016)

The ILL hosts around 40 PhD students. The topics of these PhDs cover every possible type of research with neutrons.

Season 2 (2015-2016)

All you need is neutrons - season 2 (2015-2016)

Chadwick Amphitheater, ILL4 (ground floor)


The second event of this kind will last from October 2015 to May 2016. PhD students prepared lectures on aspects of the science they are working on within their PhD project with the help of ILL staff.


This time the lectures last about 20min with 15min of questions and comments afterwards. The aim of the event was to create an occasion for informal scientific discussion similar to that found in group/department meetings in academic environments.


Information regarding the topics and the speakers can be seen in the table below. For more information please contact phd_rep(at)
