HBS Instrumentation Workshop 2022

9 - 13 May 2022, MLZ, Garching, Germany

An international workshop has been organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) on the topic of HBS Instrumentation at the MLZ in garching between 9 – 13 May, 2022. The workshop discussed possible instruments for the future HiCANS facility HBS and the suite of instruments to be offered to the demands of the user community.

The workshop was held in person and as virtual meeting with participants from all areas of neutron sciences and instrumentation from Germany and Europe. Lively discussions and constructive suggestions created a motivated spirit on the options of instruments at the future HBS facility.
