JCNS Workshop 2011
"Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Instrumentation: From Continuous to Spallation Sources"
4-7 October 2011, Tutzing
An international workshop organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science at Forschungszentrum Jülich will be held entitled
Neutron instrumentation: from continuous to spallation sources at the Evangelische Akademie Tutzing Conference Centre next to the lake Starnberg south of Munich, Germany. The workshop will begin at noon of Tuesday, October 4th and end on Friday, October 7th.
With new spallation sources taken into operation in the US and Japan, as well as with the decision to build the long-pulse spallation source in Europe, the centre of gravity in developments of neutron instrumentation is shifted towards the spallation source one.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss this transition from the point of view of the most effective use of the knowledge accumulated during the design/construction of modern instruments at continuous sources as well as from the use of first instruments at spallation sources.
The workshop will bring together experts in the neutron scattering instrumentation with the aim to discuss the latest advances in neutron instrumentation at the continuous sources and short pulse spallation sources through the prism of the use of the gained experience for the design of the long-pulse spallation source instrumentation.
We will also discuss the state of the art in some vital components of neutron instruments (choppers, polarizers/analyzers, detectors, etc.) and necessary developments towards their usage for the spallation source instrumentation.
