481. Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Seminar
  Energy Materials Research by Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation
09.05. - 11.05.2011, Meeting Place: Bad Honnef (Germany)

This is an event from Heraeus-Stiftung and HZB. The seminar is funded by 
the Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung. The goal of the seminar is to 
bring together young and experienced scientists from universities and 
from large-scale laboratories and facilities, who are using or planning 
to use neutrons or synchrotron radiation to study material that are 
related to energy research. It also aims at bringing together 
researchers conducting experimental characterization with scientists who 
have expertise in modeling. The idea of the seminar is to find a common 
language to describe the big picture behind the seemingly disparate 
phenomena in the different fields of energy research. The strengths and 
limitations of the various methods and challenges and opportunities for 
future neutron and synchrotron radiation sources will be addressed and 
new directions of applications shall be outlined. This will allow us to 
develop ideas for future international collaborations for developing and 
optimizing energy materials and related processes. The infrastructure of 
large scale facilities providing neutrons and synchrotron radiation 
shall be optimized according to the needs of this community and future 
developments will be pushed forward.

The audience of this workshop is broad and interdisciplinary, where 
different fields of research are bought together. Therefore, the 
presentations shall be understandable, where emphasis is put on basic 
concepts of the fundamental aspects of interaction of synchrotron 
radiation and neutrons with nuclei with respect to research on energy 
materials research using neutrons and synchrotron radiation as unique 
and selective probes. Ample time for discussions is aimed for bridging 
gaps between the various fields and connecting scientists to define a 
common ground. This will enhance the close collaboration between 
international research groups in experiment and theory and will 
encourage young scientists to choose this area for their scientific careers.
