The Institut Laue Langevin is the main host institution for this workshop and an international research centre at the leading edge of neutron science and technology.
The ESRF is the world’s most intense X-ray source, a centre of excellence for fundamental research, also committed to applied and industrial research. Located in Grenoble, France, the ESRF is a model of international cooperation with 21 partner nations, of which 13 are Members and 8 are Scientific Associates.
SINE2020: Science and Innovation with Neutrons in Europe in 2020
A European R&I project funded by the H2020 programme
SINE2020 is a consortium of 18 partner institutions from 12 countries. It is funded by the European Union through the H2020 programme.
It has two objectives:
- preparing Europe for the unique opportunities at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in 2020
- developing the innovation potential of neutron Large Scale Facilities (LSF’s).
ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is a world-leading centre for research at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford. Our suite of neutron and muon instruments give unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale.
The European Spallation Source (ESS) will be a multi-disciplinary research laboratory based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. ESS can be likened to a large microscope, where neutrons are used instead of light to study materials – ranging from polymers and pharmaceuticals to membranes and molecules – to gain knowledge about their structure and function. ESS will be up to 100 times better than existing facilities, opening up new possibilities for researchers in for example health, environment, climate, energy, transport sciences and cultural heritage.
CRYSTAL IMPACT's basic goal is to develop high quality software which allows even non-specialist users to apply most recent scientific and software technologies. Key areas of activity are crystal structure solution, visualization, phase identification from powder, as well as crystal structure databases. Chemists, physicists and material scientists from industry and academic institutions in more than 60 countries all over the world use Crystal Impact's innovative software tools to determine, visualize and understand the crystal structures of their compounds, investigate the composition of their samples by powder diffraction, or search crystallographic databases for information about recent advancements in their area of research.
DECTRIS is focused on developing and producing high-quality, high-performance hybrid photon counting (HPC) X-ray detectors. We are the global leader in HPC X-ray detectors for science and industry, and develop our technology to advance new markets such as medical, electron microscopy, and X-ray inspection.
