Symposium VV: Advanced Materials Exploration with Neutrons and Synchrotron X-Rays

25 Nov 2012 - 30 Nov 2012 - Boston, MA, USA

Modern diffraction methods of synchrotron and neutron radiation, combined simultaneously with time-resolved or imaging techniques, allow a multidimensional insight into materials. Thus, time-resolved and in-situ information from an ensemble of individual grains in a polycrystalline material can be obtained while undergoing mechanical, chemical, or electric load under working, or extreme, conditions. The powerful radiation sources, from reactors to spallation sources, synchrotrons to free-electron lasers, together with advanced detection, data analysis, and modeling tools, revolutionize the insight into materials in a broadest sense.

Contributions are sought in the fields of metallurgy and materials forming; energy materials in realistic conditions; and response of functional materials under parametric load. The methods shall cover time and lengths scales from picoseconds to days, and sub-angstrom to meters, respectively. Particularly, contributions using an innovative approach in their application, or from the novel upcoming facilities with unprecedented possibilities, are solicited.
