Workshop on Industrial Research Using Synchrotron and Neutron Methods

Feb. 19., 2015, 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. Presentations are given by industrial users and researchers. A tour into the experimental hall of the synchrotron is possible if wanted.

The one day workshop is free of charge to the participants.

The workshop is kindly supported by the FP7 EU Access Program Calipso.
