15. May 2017 - 17. May 2017 Deuteration for Neutron Scattering – DEUNET Workshop

Oxford Spires Hotel, Oxford, UK


Deuteration underpins the ability of neutron scattering techniques to elucidate the structure and dynamics of complex multicomponent materials that are typical in soft condensed matter and life sciences. With a wide range of advanced neutron facilities and instruments either in place or under development across Europe, it is of crucial importance that a strong emphasis is also placed on preparing deuterated samples that will maximise the quality and impact of current and future research. This workshop, organized jointly by the STFC Deuteration facility and the DEUNET European chemical deuteration network, brings together the user community with existing and developing deuteration laboratories to present recent advances in soft matter and life sciences and to discuss the needs to development of new methods, materials and deuteration services to fully leverage the investments made in neutron instrumentation in Europe.

The workshop will consist of a series of talks by user groups presenting their science using deuteration and neutrons, as well as presentation of the current capabilities and work done at the participating deuteration laboratories.

The workshop will collect valuable input from the user community on current and future deuteration needs for the DEUNET collaboration funded by the SINE2020 project (www.sine2020.eu). Read more about the DEUNET at deuteration.net.

Registration is now open and limited to 60 participants. Abstracts for posters are welcome until the 2nd April 2017.
