We are pleased to announce the Deuteration for Neutron Scattering – DEUNET workshop, organised jointly by the STFC Deuteration facility and the DEUNET European Deuteration Network which will be held at the Oxford Spires Hotel, Oxford, UK 15-17th of May 2017.

Deuteration benefits neutron scattering investigations of many types of soft and biological material ranging from macromolecular structures to energy material function. The workshop aims to demonstrate the impact of deuterium-labelling in neutron science, and to establish applications in which this technique will play a key role in generating the greatest future scientific potential. The workshop will consist of a series of scientific presentations on the state-of-the art applications of neutron scattering and deuterium labelling and updates on the current capabilities of deuteration facilities in Europe and around the world. Extensive interactions between the delegates will be facilitate by dedicated discussion sessions in addition to a poster session.

Detailed information, including a preliminary program and list of confirmed speakers can be found at: https://indico.esss.lu.se/event/756/

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

We hope to see you in Oxford!

Deuteration User Survey

 

Within the SINE2020 project we have setup an European Deuteration Network (DEUNET) that aims to increase the availability and accessibility of complex deuterated molecules to the European neutron scattering community. The existing capabilities of the laboratories at ISIS, ILL and FZJ which currently produce deuterated materials for neutron scattering will be complemented by an additional laboratory at ESS. Furthermore, the organisation of the facilities into a network leverages the unique specialisations of each of the laboratories.

Under this project we have prepared a short user survey to help us to get a better overview of your demands for deuterated materials. We hope you will participate in this survey.

Thank you for your help,
