'Revealing the hidden structure and dynamics of matter: opportunities for research at the ISIS Neutron and Muon source'
This seminar is part of the University of Manchester at Harwell Ideas Forum Imaging series. The aim of this series is to increase networking of academics and researchers across the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the National Laboratories. In doing so, we hope to link experienced users with new users to teach them about the University of Manchester and the Harwell National Facilities.
In this seminar, given by Professor Sean Langridge, head of the ISIS Diffraction and Materials Division at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Prof Langridge will briefly introduce the neutron and muon techniques which allow imaging in both real and reciprocal space and develop their application to a range of problems in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, and the life sciences. These applications cover the spectrum from basic to applied research. He will also describe how to access these facilities and to apply them to your research challenges.
The ISIS facility is a large multi-disciplinary research facility which provide state of the art capabilities to explore matter using neutron and muon techniques. Neutron scattering is capable of accessing a large range of length and energy scales which are ideally matched to contemporary problems in advanced materials, soft matter and the bio-sciences, and provides an absolute, quantitative four dimensional understanding of matter.
Muon spectroscopy is an extremely powerful technique which often complements neutron measurements and provides unique information on the structure of matter through the interaction between the muon’s spin and the local atomic and molecular environment.
