"Get the best of all": Structure research by merging the peculiarities of synchrotron, neutron, electron and ion radiation

Nowadays challenges in physics, chemistry, biology and material sciences often require crystallographic/ structural studies that combine smartly various scattering methods using complementary synchrotron, neutron and ion radiation. The workshop consists of two parts: in the first part, the peculiarities of the different kinds of radiation and their generation be discussed including an overview of the corresponding large scale facilities and the kind of methods they offer for structure analysis. In the second part, focusing on applications, experienced scientists will give an insight into the unique information they gain by merging the complementary methods. The following topics are planned:

  • quantum phenomena/correlated systems (magnetism and superconductivity)

  • macromolecular and biological studies (life sciences)

  • functional materials for energy research

  • etc.

The workshop should will take place from Sept. 19th, 2018 afternoon (16:00h) to Sept. 20th, 2018 until lunchtime (13:00h). In addition, an optional guided tour of the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz research neutron source FRM II in the afternoon of Sept. 20th is planned at 15:00h. Please note that participation in the guided tour requires a registration at least 21 days in advance. The event is organized by the Working Group “Neutron Scattering” of the German Crystallography Society (DGK).

If you have questions or would like to announce your interest in this workshop please do not hesitate to contact the working group spokesman Martin Meven.
