Preliminary Program for Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Workshop at Australia's Replacement Research
On the 13th and 14th of December 2001, the seventh of eight workshops to discuss the neutron-beam
instrumentation for Australia's Replacement Research Reactor will take place at Lucas Heights, just
outside Sydney, Australia. The subject will be scientific applications and technology of small-angle
The purpose of the workshop is to
i) demonstrate the applications of this technique to Australian industry, government and
ii) make a start on defining specifications for a small-angle scattering instrument at the
Replacement Research Reactor
The workshop is open to all participants, and there are funds to support travel for staff and
students from Australian and New Zealand Universities.
