Viktor Cybulskis, a 4th year graduate student from Mishawaka, Ind., received top  honors at the 16th National School on Neutron and X-Ray Scattering (NXS) at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Laboratories in June.

Participants were divided into groups during the school. At the conclusion of the school, each group presented an experiment that they conducted during the two-week program. Cybulskis won that competition for his group. At Purdue he is advised by Drs. Fabio Ribeiro and W. Nicholas Delgass.

The NXS School “targets graduate students from all across the country in physical sciences to study hands-on and theory of neutron and X-ray scattering at large national facilities,” said Bryan Chakoumakos instrument scientist from ORNL and a co-director for the school. “The hands-on part is to familiarize themselves with the big facilities – how to access them, how to interact with the instrument scientists.”
