Grazing Incidence Small Angle Neutron Scattering (GISANS) Summit
19-06-2018 @ 13:00 - 15:30
Grazing-incidence small-angle neutron scattering (GISANS) is a scattering technique used to study nanostructured surfaces and thin films using neutrons. This techniques makes it possible to characterize different types of surfaces and surface films on a nanometer scale. Based on the unique knowledge obtained we will be able to, for example, develop new drugs or new materials for building elements, infrastructure, energy storage, and vehicles.
A GISANS summit will be held during lunch time 13.00-15.30 on the 19 of June at the 1st National Meeting of the Swedish Chemical Society in Lund, 17-20 June 2018. The summit will take place at Matteannexet, Sölvegatan 20, a-d, Lund University.
The aim is the promote and coordinate the efforts to build a Swedish GISANS instrument at ESS. The discussion will be initiated by two keynote speakers:
- Professor Thomas Hellweg, Physical and Biophysical Chemistry, Bielefeld University, Germany, who will give a GISANS introduction and talk about his GISANS work on responsive gel particles on surface.
- Dr. Thomas Arnold, ESS (responsible for the Freia reflectometer), who will talk about the complementarity of GISANS and GISAXS and the ESS perspective of a Swedish GISANS instrument at GISANS.
After these two talks we will have a discussion moderated by Professor Mark Rutland, KTH, Stockholm.
If you want to make a short 1 slide pitch for the a specific science case where you know GISANS or Off specular scattering will be beneficial, please notify Tommy Nylander at Tommy.Nylander@fkem1.lu.se. We will devote most of the time for time for a constructive discussion regarding the Swedish GISANS initiative.
In order to get a rough estimate of participant number, please e-mail your notice of interest to Tommy.Nylander@fkem1.lu.se.
Meeting is sponsored by Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, Stockholm, Sweden.
