The physical properties of structural as well as functional components are largely governed by the materials microstructure. In polycrystalline materials, the crystallographic phase and preferred grain orientation (texture) can dominate the physical properties. A range of microscopy and diffraction techniques are hence routinely used for their characterization, but are prone to miss local variations across […]
Coexisting curved and flat membranes
The complexity of cellular membranes is not only reflected by their wide molecular composition but also in the wide range of morphologies with coexisting high and low curvature regions. Very little is known about the nanostructure of curved membranes, due to limitations in experimental and simulation approaches. Even though curvature-induced microscopic phase separation has been […]
Webinar Registration: Structure Generation for MD Simulations of Soft Matter Systems
It is our great pleasure to invite you to an online launch event and workshop to showcase two new software workflows which will be of interest to the Small-angle Scattering and Disordered Materials communities. The development of these tools has been funded by the Ada Lovelace Centre and they are intended to offer users new […]
Advancements in Thermal Neutron Scattering Law Generation
The design of neutron systems, for example nuclear reactors and neutron sources, requires the usage of Monte-Carlo simulation software to predict the distributions of neutrons throughout the system. At low energies, the interactions of neutrons with a material is driven by interactions on the atomic and molecular scale and thus a proper description of this […]
Swedish in-kind to ESS
The Swedish neutron community have long been asking for a way of contributing in-kind to ESS, and now it is possible. This way, Sweden can build competence in instrumentation and new collaborations develop. In-kind collaborations can give a close connection to the ESS instrument projects and opportunities to be involved in first science at ESS.
Svenska forskare vill bygga GISANS
Instrumentet gör det möjligt att karakterisera ytor och yt-filmer på nanometerskala, vilket i sin tur gör det möjligt att till exempel forska fram nya läkemedel, material för byggelement, energilagring, spintronik och fordon.
SwedNess Opens 10 PhD Positions
The Swedish graduate school in neutron scattering is now online and opens 10 PhD student positions.
Support for Nordic Co-operation in Scattering
Funding for short visits to promote co-operation in the Nordic region.
Neutrons – A Swedish Strategy for 2015 to 2025 and Beyond
At the annual meeting in KTH, an updated strategy for SNSS was proposed. After discussion at the meeting and taking in input from the SNSS, the board has now preapred a final version.
On 27-28 May 2015 the 19th Annual Meeting of the Swedish Neutron Scattering Society (SNSS-19) was organized at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.
