JCNS Workshop 2014

Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Scattering

From spallation to continuous neutron sources: a positive feedback on neutron instrumentation

20-23 October 2014, Tutzing, Germany



An international workshop organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science entitled:

"From spallation to continuous neutron sources: a positive feedback on neutron instrumentation"

will be held at the Evangelische Akademie Tutzing near Munich, Germany. The workshop will start after lunch on 20 October and end on 23 October 2014.

During recent years a number of new instruments have been designed for ISIS, J-PARC and SNS – some of these ideas and experience can be very useful for the instrumentation at continuous sources. The ESS at the horizon should be another trigger to intensify today’s instrumentation upgrade. Many years of enormous intellectual efforts of the world neutron community, both users and instrument scientists aiming the definition of new instrumental challenges and developments of the instrumental concepts resulted in new ideas and approaches, which cover the whole neutron tract (target, cold sources, neutron delivery systems, instrument components and instruments themselves). This stockpile of knowledge can be fruitfully used for the improvement of the existing instrumentation.

The workshop will be devoted to this issue and bring together neutron scientists working both at spallation and continuous neutron sources to consider the latest instrumental developments for spallation sources through the prism of their use for instrumentation at continuous sources. Challenges met during the construction of the last generation of neutron instruments at continuous sources will be discussed as well.

The workshop fee includes accommodation for 3 nights (20-23 October), fullboard, the excursion and the workshop dinner.
