JCNS Workshop 2023 - Scope

Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Scattering:
Future Instruments at Pulsed Sources


The neutron landscape has undergone some changes in recent years after the closure of several research reactors in Europe. Therefore, making available state-of-the-art new high-performance neutron sources with an optimized range of instruments is one of the issues that is occupying the modern neutron scatterer community. For their construction there is now an increasing focus on alternative techniques to nuclear fission, such as pulsed sources and, among these, accelerator-driven, low-energy compact neutron sources are considered worldwide to be the next generation for a wide range of applications.

The JCNS Workshop 2023 will be dedicated to future instruments at pulsed sources and it will have the aim of discussing the last and new developments in instrumentation for such sources together with the new opportunities offered by complementary techniques and by industrial applications.

The following sessions are planned:

  • Upcoming facilities and upgrades
  • Diffraction (crystal, powder, low-q)
  • Large scale structures
  • Spectroscopy
  • Element analysis
  • Imaging
  • Digital tools for instrumentation at pulsed sources
  • Industrial applications

The conference is organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS), Forschungszentrum Jülich.
