Workshop of the neutron scattering in partnership with ILL


Ljubljana, April 8, 2022 - As part of a scientific partnership with the Max von Laue-Paul Langevin Institute (ILL) signed in August 2020, a workshop on neutron scattering was held at the National Institute of Chemistry.

In a one-day mini-workshop, four leading scientists from the ILL Institute - Mark Johnson (pictured above), Thomas Hansen, Ralf Schweins and Paul Steffens - presented the opportunities and incentives for neutron scattering research. In seven short presentations, researchers from three Slovenian institutions (National Institute of Chemistry, 'Jožef Stefan' Institute, University of Nova Gorica) presented the results of their latest neutron studies.

The Max von Laue-Paul Langevin Institute, located in Grenoble, France, is the world's leading research centre for neutron scattering. It acts as a supporting research institute, providing visiting scientists from all over the world with a state-of-the-art research infrastructure and all the professional support they need to conduct neutron scattering research.

At the meeting, the financier of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports was thanked and a wish was expressed to continue this kind of cooperation in the future.
