Dear colleagues,

we like to make you aware of our annual JCNS Workshop to be held Oct.
10-13, 2017 in Tutzing, Germany.

The JCNS Workshop 2017 is entitled "Trends and Perspectives in Neutron
Instrumentation: Probing Structure and Dynamics at Interfaces and

Abstract submission and registration is open at


As the evolution of structure and composition at interfaces between
materials affects a large variety of intrinsic and functional parameters
defining interaction and reaction schemes, the analytical techniques
capable of exploring the interfaces are still very limited, and more
often only ex situ studies are performed. As neutron techniques are
capable of operando studies of interfaces, of visualization of buried
interfaces and interactions and of probing interfacial kinetics and
dynamics they have become an extensively growing in this field of
research. The JCNS Workshop 2017 aims at highlighting recent approaches
and developing ideas on the adaptation of neutron reflectometry, small
angle neutron scattering, neutron spectroscopy, neutron imaging and
depth profiling and neutron spin echo spectroscopy.

The workshop will discuss current requirements and developments in
probing surfaces and interfaces using such techniques. In particular the
workshop is devoted to novel and upcoming experimental opportunities
with various new instruments in operation or planned at neutron
facilities to discuss the scientific options and capabilities in this
area. Invited speakers are as follows:

• Robert Cubitt, ILL
• Mike Fitzsimmons, ORNL
• Björgvin Hjörvarson, Uppsalla
• Regine von Klitzing, Darmstadt
• Sean Langridge, ISIS
• Valeria Lauter, ORNL
• Peter Müller Buschbaum, TU München
• Tommy Nylander, Lund
• Adrian Rennie, Uppsalla
• Maikel Rheinstadter, McMaster
• Stefan Wellert, TU Berlin
• Ali Zarbakhsh, Queen Mary

The conference is organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science
(JCNS), Forschungszentrum Jülich.

With kind regards,

Thomas Brückel, Thomas Gutberlet, Stefan Mattauch, Olaf Holderer
