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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
Lena Ek har fått uppdraget att från den första december i år bistå Regeringskansliet i arbetet med ESS. SNSS ser mycket positivt till detta beslut och välkomnar Lena till hennes nya uppdrag.
We take pleasure in informing you that registration is now open (Deadline 1 Dec. 2016!!!) for the MATRAC 2 Winter School ‘Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science with special focus on Fundamental Aspects of Materials’ to be held in Utting/Ammersee and Garching/Munich, Germany, February 27 to March 3, 2017.
Nordic conference: Scandic Hotel, Vester Søgade, Copenhagen, 7th December 2015 9.30 – 16.00
Dear SNSS members, We are organizing a colloquium on neutron science on May 26th at KTH, the afternoon before the annual SNSS meeting. The purpose of the colloquium is to reach out to the wider science community in the Stockholm area, inviting them to take part of some exciting scientific developments that are happening using […]
