Networking platform for neutron-based analytical techniques

We would like to initiate a networking platform dedicated to the development of neutron-based analytical techniques such as:

  • delayed or Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA, PGNAA)
  • Neutron Depth Profiling (NDP)

and their applications in science and industry.

The aim

.. of the networking platform is to increase the visibility of these analytical techniques and their impacts on solving scientific, societal and industrial challenges in Europe. The platform is open to large-scale facilities operating research reactors and institutions working with isotopic neutron sources or neutron generators and also to the users of neutron-based analytical techniques. It will provide an opportunity to exchange basic information on the techniques and methods, to discuss possible co-operations and to support programs for the mobility of scientists and students between the different members. Moreover, it should be a place where strategies are discussed jointly in order to ensure sustainable developments and applications of these techniques in various fields as well as to emerge from the shadow of the neutron scattering community as an own entity.

The platform can guide also potential users from research and industry to identify suitable facilities or methods for particular applications. As a first step, we plan a website of the networking platform which would be operated at MLZ (Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum), Garching.

If you are willing to participate in this collaboration, please contact me. I am also looking forward to your recommendations.
