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.
