Organising Committee

We are delighted to present our organising committee :

Jérôme Beaucour (ILL) - Head of Neutron Distribution and Mecanics Department

Jérôme BEAUCOUR is the head of the ILL mechanics and neutron distribution service (Grenoble, France) since 2005. He is graduated from Ecole CENTRALE PARIS (1986), and receives his Ph. D. in physics at Paris University (1990).

Regarding neutron delivery system, his teams successfully achieved numerous guide upgrade or new constructions: H1H2 guide (2006), H22 & H113 refurbishment (borofloat early ageing), H17 (2 beams), H112 (2 beams), H14 (4 beams), H5 (5 beams), H16 new guides, and during the last 2 years: H24 (2 beams) & H15 (three beams- on –going).

During the past 5 years, he set and coordinated the ILL2023 program bundling into a single organization the instruments projects of the ENDURANCE programme and the major reactor maintenance works at the ILL (beam tube replacement, safety upgrades, new or refurbished instruments and neutron guides), with its culmination during the H1H2 long shutdown.

On Colin Carlile suggestion, Jerome initiated the first NDS workshop in 2006, as well as its successive editions, with the collaboration of Michael Kreuz

Michael Kreuz (ILL) - Project Manager

Michael Kreuz came to the ILL in 2000 as a thesis student from the university of Heidelberg under the supervision of Prof. H. Abele. He finished his thesis in the Neutron and Particle Physics group of the ILL in 2004. Since 2005, he works as a project manager for the mechanics and neutron distribution service of the ILL.

Concerning neutron delivery systems, he was involved in several major neutron guide installations at the ILL in recent years. Among those, the most important ones were H112 in 2012, the complete upgrade of the H5 guide system in 2014 and the refurbishment of the H1-H2 guide system in 2022.

Since 2006 he was involved in the organization of the NDS workshop in Grenoble.

Sarah Kelleher (ILL) -  Assistant to Mecanical and Experimentail areas Department


On behalf of the International Society of Neutron Instrument Engineers :

Iain Sutton ISNIE (ESS) ,

David Anderson ISNIE (ORNL)

David Anderson is the Systems Engineering and Integration Lead for Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL) Second Target Station (STS) Project. He is responsible for coordinating the systems engineering and integration of all technical systems and subsystems for the STS. He previously managed the STS Instrument Engineering group, which is responsible for the engineering design, fabrication and installation of the neutron instruments and shielding bunkers, and managed Instrument Engineering in ORNL’s Neutron Sciences Directorate before that.

David has been heavily involved in the Design and Engineering of Neutron Instruments Meeting (DENIM) since its inception in 2012. He was a founder of the International Society of Neutron Instrument Engineers (ISNIE) and served as its first President from 2017 to 2020. 

David holds three patents (one pending) associated with his involvement in developing a process to additively manufacture collimators and other devices for neutron scattering instruments from Boron Carbide and other neutron absorbing materials.
