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.
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.
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.
