Inside SINE2020

February 2017: e-newsletter 6

Dear colleagues,

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!

Best regards,
The SINE2020 Coordination Team
