  • Virtual: Investigating the early life on Earth with nanoscale X-ray coherent imaging
    15:30 -16:30
    21-05-06

    From the event website: Deciphering the earliest records of life on Earth is a challenging undertaking, especially after billions of years of geological processing that have acted towards obliterating and modifying the original biological remains. Unequivocally identifying ancient microbial biosignatures, as well as understanding the alteration and potential of preservation of different compounds is crucial for both reconstructing the history of life on Earth, and also for guiding the search of past life in other planets. Inherent characteristics of these geobiological samples, such as micrometric dimensions, simple morphologies, and high degree of mineralization have challenged conventional imaging methods, whereas their precious nature has pushed towards the need of non-destructive methods.

  • Virtual: Swedish Neutron Week 2021
    13:00 -15:30
    21-05-10-21-05-12

    From the event website: The aim of the “Swedish Neutron Week” is to bring together and enhance the Swedish community and research involving neutron techniques. Topics will include science using neutron techniques, as well as method development, in terms of instrumentation, data analysis and theory/simulation. We welcome participation and contributions from academic, large-scale facility, research institute and industry researchers to discuss the latest developments in neutron-related science in Sweden and beyond.

    The workshop will take place over 3 afternoons 10th-12th May, 2021, and will include keynote presentations as well as contributed talks. The 1st day will highlight some of the latest developments in neutron-based science, plus the annual SNSS business meeting. On the second day the program will incorporate the 3rd in the SNSS webinar series, which will focus on neutron diffraction. This will be followed by a special SWEDNESS session. The 3rd day will have a focus on the upcoming science possibilities at ESS including presentations on the science being performed in relation to and in preparation for ESS by the Swedish community and ESS scientists.

  • Virtual course: SWEDNESS/LINXS Doctoral-level course on neutron imaging
    10:00 -16:00
    21-05-17-21-05-20

    From the event website: This doctoral-level course will provide an introduction to different neutron imaging modalities based on the theoretical background to the methods and demonstration of their use through real examples. The course will involve a combination of lectures and hands-on (computer-based) exercises with experts in the field from leading neutron imaging facilities. Topics including neutron transmission tomography, tomographic reconstruction and 3D/4D image analysis will be covered, in addition to advanced topics such as scattering-contrast, energy-selective and polarised neutron imaging. Practical aspects relating to planning and preparing neutron imaging experiments will also be discussed. In addition, there will be opportunities to discuss with experts in the field and fellow researchers.

  • Virtual: QENS/WINS 2021
    All day
    21-05-17-21-05-21

    From the event website: QENS/WINS 2021 will span over the five days 17-21 May 2021. From 14:00h to 16:30h Central European Summer Time, Keynote and Invited talks will be offered, as well as a 30-minutes ‘coffee break’, that will allow communication among all the participants. The talks will be recorded and will be available the day after to all the interested attendants. In a ‘moodle’, all information about the Conference will be available. Forums will be open where participants can pose / answer questions and exchange ideas throughout the meeting. In addition to the invited talks, poster-like presentations (including the possibility of videos and other complementary information) will be accessible for all attendants along the 5 days.

    Why a joint QENS/WINS?: QENS focusses on the discussion and exchange of scientific ideas related to the investigation of atomic and molecular motions, while WINS deals with instrumental aspects of quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques. Though originally QENS and WINS were held in an independent way, the added value of their joint celebration has been put forward since it enhances their scope and impact on the scientific community related with the quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques.

    Young scientists involved in neutron scattering investigations can particularly profit from this joint event (and are especially welcome).

  • Virtual: X-ray ptychographic topography, a new tool for strain imaging – Diffraction of X-ray by thin perfect crystals
    15:00 -17:00
    21-05-20

    From the event website: Strain and defects in crystalline materials are responsible for the distinct mechanical, electric and magnetic properties of a desired material, making their study an essential task in material characterization, fabrication and design. Existing techniques for the visualization of strain fields, such as transmission electron microscopy and diffraction, are destructive and limited to thin slices of the materials. On the other hand, non-destructive X-ray imaging methods either have a reduced resolution or are not robust enough for a broad range of applications. In this talk I will present X-ray ptychographic topography, a new method for strain imaging with the resolution of tens of nanometers, and demonstrate its use on an InSb micro-pillar after micro-compression, where the strained region is visualized. I will describe the experiment performed in both transmission and diffraction geometry and show how X-ray ptychographic topography proves itself as a robust non-destructive approach for the imaging of strain fields within bulk crystalline specimens with a spatial resolution of a few tens of nanometers.
