MLZ aims for a comprehensive refurbishment program, MORIS, in order to consolidate the instruments suite, identify and address potential long term reliability issues and provide an opportunity to implement new concepts or technologies, be it for beam delivery, at the core of the instruments or at the sample environment level.
MORIS stands for "MLZ Organized Refurbishment of the Instrument Suite". This project roots on proposals made by the MLZ scientists but, in accordance to our mission as a user facility, we are seeking a strong cooperation with the neutron community as a whole.
At this workshop, we would like to discuss our plans and ideas for the upgrade and further developments of our instrument suite in view of the anticipated scientific questions of the coming years. The workshop will take place at the MLZ in Garching on April 26-27th (lunch to lunch meeting, the timetable can be found here).
The workshop comprises plenary and parallel sessions with contributions from the user community as well as a presentation of the envisioned projects. The parallel sessions are structured along the experimental methods given below. For each topical session, scientific talks will highlight the pertinent questions of current and future research and how the instrument development can address these questions.
The parallel session will cover:
* Spectroscopy of Soft Matter
* Spectroscopy of Hard Matter
* Large Scale Structures
* Analytical Methods, Positrons, Imaging (API)
Ample time will be dedicated to open discussion, in order to ensure that the proposed upgrades satisfy the needs raised by the present trends and future challenges. The outcome of the discussion will be the baseline for the science case of our upgrade programme MORIS.
So, be part of this initiative to shape the future of neutron science at the European level and join us for this workshop where we will set the next steps towards a better user facility!
Looking forward to meeting you in Garching,
