This HERCULES Specialized Course will address non-crystallographic X-ray and neutron scattering techniques for structural biology and soft matter with a focus on small angle scattering, reflectometry and fibre diffraction. An introduction to the theory as well as recent state-of-the-art examples from a multitude of systems (proteins, polymers, membranes, fibres, colloids etc.) will be presented as well as recent developments in sample environment and data analysis. Furthermore, two practical days on two ILL instruments (D17 and D33) and two ESRF beamlines (BM02 and BM29) will be proposed. The course is aimed at PhD students, postdocs and scientists in the field of physics, chemistry and biology who want to learn more on the theoretical background, practical aspects and applications of these techniques.
