The University of Manchester at Harwell: The Portal to National Facility Science with participation from The University of Manchester's Henry Moseley X-Ray Imaging Facility
Dr Fabien Léonard, Data Analysis Manager, will present The University of Manchester at Harwell (UoMaH) and its raison d'être: to identify and help bring forward new techniques and technologies for light source innovation, data analytics and facility science. The UoMaH team provides equipment and support for high risk experiments and those carried out under extreme sample environments, across all the central facilities at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL). Examples will illustrate how UoMaH is making hazardous experiments (toxic, radioactive and irradiated samples) low risks so that both users and facility are assured of operations, and which results are delivered. Fabien will cover some of the data analysis challenges faced across the central facilities, but from a user’s point of view. Examples will show the problems encountered, and the current solutions provided by the UoMaH team, from data reconstruction to data processing for X-ray and neutron tomography, as well as the future developments to handle other modalities.
Dr. Tristan Lowe, Senior Experimental Officer with The Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging Facility (HMXIF) at the University of Manchester, will be co presenting. Tristan has worked for a number of years as a consultant for industrial partners in the Aerospace, Automotive, Nuclear and petrology industries; his presentation will focus on the metrology side of CT measurements.
