Welcome to the Swedish Neutron Week 2021
We are pleased to announce that the Swedish Neutron Week 2021 will be held at Vildmarkshotellet in Kolmården 3rd – 6th of May 2021. The event is jointly arranged by SNSS, SwedNess, and Linköping University, and is open to everyone who is, or wish to be, part of the Swedish neutron scattering community. Participation in the Neutron Week is an excellent opportunity to get a cross-sectional view of current Swedish activities in the field. The purpose of the Neutron Week is to bring together Swedish neutron users, facilities, industry, and funding agencies, to offer an annual event facilitating networking, cooperation and joint actions between the participants.
The scientific program will include contributions demonstrating the possibilities of neutron scattering for investigating materials in, for example, pharmaceuticals, quantum materials, bio-based materials, engineering, energy technologies, and soft matter. Presentations of neutron instrumentation, and in particular a dedicated session on GISANS, related to a current initiative to establish a Swedish GISANS instrument project at the ESS, will be included. The capabilities offered by the Swedish large scale facilities, ESS and MAXIV, will also be highlighted.
An Industry Day on 5th of May will be dedicated to industrial applications of neutron techniques. Through success stories delivered by industry representatives, we demonstrate the possibilities that lie in the use of neutron scattering for different industrial sectors. ESS and RISE are represented at the meeting, which will offer opportunities for discussion and networking. In addition, SwedNESS PhD students and mentors in the field present their research and possible applications with an industrial perspective.
The Neutron Week will be followed by a Career Day on 6th of May, also arranged at Vildmarkshotellet, which is open to PhD students and PostDocs interested in future opportunities within neutron scattering.
