We hope 2017 started well for everyone. We've been busy promoting neutron schools as well as providing beamtime to industrial companies.
To inform you about this and much more, the first Inside SINE2020 newsletter of the year brings you the following news:
- High pressure research using muons at PSI
- Industrial users through SINE2020: STEPAN (surfactants) and Haldor Topsøe (hydrogen production)
- Schools: review of the first year of funding, open registrations to Oxford School and JCNS Lab Course
- Some highlights from Neutronsources.org: Call for Abstracts for ICNS 2017 and the China Mianyang Research Reactor
- Communicating neutron scattering on the Neutron News Editorial
We hope you enjoy your reading!
The SINE2020 Coordination Team
High pressure research using muons at PSI
As part of the Sample Environment activities, a team at the Paul Scherrer Institute published a review of high pressure µSR experiments.
Improved formulation for STEPAN surfactants
One of the world’s largest producers of surfactants considers the time spent at ILL using neutrons, through SINE2020, invaluable for its R&D activities.
Haldor Topsøe uses neutrons to improve performance of cells for hydrogen production
A world leader in the development and manufacture of catalysts and the design of process plants for the chemical and petrochemical industries used neutrons at MLZ through SINE2020.
The first year of SINE2020 support of neutron and muon schools
About 250 students and early career scientists have already benefited from SINE2020 funding to eight introductory neutron and muon schools. Grants will also be available for advanced schools soon.
