Workshop on Industrial Research Using Synchrotron and Neutron Methods

Dec. 3., 2013, Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin, Berlin-Adlershof, Germany

Innovation requires best analytical methods to study structure and function of novel materials. Synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering a complementary analytical methods to investigate any kind of matter to probe structure, composition and interaction in order to improve and understand materials. Application of synchrotron and neutron methods for industrial research include the analysis of chemical compositions by diffraction and spectroscopy, non-invasive measurement of stress and strain in mechanical components, high resolution imaging of working systems and many other topics.

To present and discuss current state of the art usage of synchrotron and neutron methods in industrial research an international workshop is organized by the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie operating and offering access to the synchrotron source BESSY II and the neutron source BER II. Presentation are given by industrial users and researchers.

The one day workshop is a satellite workshop to the 5th Joint BER II and BESSY II User Meeting on Dec. 4-6 at HZB and is free of charge to the participants.

The workshop is kindly supported by the FP7 EU Access Programs Calipso and NMI3-II
