SwedNess + SNSS Annual Meetings 2018 + RMC Workshop

We are happy to announce that “The Swedish Neutron Week”, including SwedNess & SNSS annual meetings and an RMC/ PDF workshop, will be held between 23rd to 26th of April 2018 in Göteborg at Quality Hotel 11 and at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

The scope of the “Neutron Week” is to enhance and identify different actors, and needs, in the neutron scattering area either having interest in methods development and/or as users promoting communication and joint actions between the scientific community, facilities, companies and grant givers. By encouraging actions between universities, industry and facilities (both neutron and synchrotron) the efficient use, and coordination of resources, can be enhanced.

Info on RMC Workshop

A workshop with focus on PDF and Reverse Monte Carlo  analysis of total scattering data, a very powerful tools when it comes to studies of e.g. local order and vacancy distribution in materials, is planned April 25th and 26th. Background and hands-on exercises will be presented and supervised by Helen Playford and Wojciech Slawinski from the ISIS neutron spallation facility at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in UK. More info on RMC can be found here.


Presentation of neutron instrument design efforts (including sample environment and software) and possibilities to investigate materials targeted for application in for example pharmaceuticals, drug delivery, next generation energy technologies, including batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, and thermoelectrics, will be highlighted. In particular, there is a focus on the new capabilities offered by ESS and MAXIV.
