• Scientific potential for combined or in-situ neutron spectroscopy

    During this focus session we will discuss science cases from recent neutron spectroscopy experiments combined with other spectroscopic and in-situ techniques.
    Combining different spectroscopic techniques offers new, exciting and unprecedented opportunities for neutron scattering based science.
    It poses, however, technical challenges whose solution requires the introduction of new strategies in experimental practice.

    The idea of the session is to discuss science cases which will profit from the simultaneous application of spectroscopic techniques, to discuss the technical implementation of different experimental tools along with neutron spectrometers, as well as to stimulate collaborations in this field among interested users.

    Potential target cases of in-situ experiments comprise in-operando effects in fuel cells, batteries and hydrogen storage media, chemical reactions and degradation, as well as dynamics stimulated by external energy sources such as light and microwaves. Examples of potential techniques to be carried out simultaneously with neutron scattering are NMR, dielectric, shear, Raman and UV/VIS spectroscopy, gravimetry, dynamic light scattering, specific heat and calorimetry.

  • Laue Diffraction for Biology

    This focus session will highlight recent studies which exemplify how neutron macromolecular crystallography moves forward structural chemistry and biology studies of protein function that were otherwise at an impasse with other probes of matter. In addition we will highlight new instrumentation and software developments.

    - Gerard Bricogne, Global Phasing Ltd, UK
    - Zoe Fisher, European Spallation Source, Sweden
    - John Helliwell, University of Manchester, UK

  • Laue Diffraction for Materials

    The use of large solid angle detectors based either on image plates (LADI) or CCD cameras (CYCLOPS and ORIENTEXPRESS) has allowed the renaissance of neutron Laue diffraction at ILL. The high-spatial resolution and fast readout system of the CCD-based diffractometers allows measurements of Laue patterns within several seconds. CYCLOPS provides a unique instrument for real-time surveys of large volume of reciprocal space under various conditions of temperature pressure and magnetic field. Structural and magnetic phase transitions as well as incommensurate structures can be investigated. Thanks to the fast readout, thermodiffractometry experiments on single crystal become possible with time-resolution similar to that with powder samples.

    Recently a new software package consisting of a suite of programs (Esmeralda Laue Suite) for handling Laue diffraction data from visualization, integration and normalization have been developed.

    The aim of the workshop is to highlight the capability of the Laue diffraction technique not only for conventional crystallography but also for real-time in-situ experiments.

  • Imaging

    During this focus session we will discuss recent developments in neutron imaging as well as science cases from a variety of fields. The recent construction of NeXT (the imaging beamline at the ILL) as well as the ongoing construction of ODIN (the imaging beamline of ESS) will be discussed, together with their recent results, with an outlook on the panoply of opportunities they offer.
