MAX IV & ESS Workshop: X-ray and neutron techniques for bio-based materials research
Learn how to benefit from advanced X-ray and neutron techniques in bio-based materials research.
Time & Location
29 Nov, 11:00 – 17:00 EET
Aalto University, Palaver, Dipoli, Otakaari 24, 02150 Espoo, Finland
About the Event
The city of Lund in southern Sweden hosts two world-leading large-scale research facilities. The MAX IV synchrotron has been operational since 2016, with 16 beamlines dedicated to different X-ray techniques being currently available. The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a neutron facility that is being built in the close vicinity of MAX IV, and it is expected to open for users in 2027. These facilities offer a wide range of scattering, imaging and spectroscopy techniques that can be used to study the structure and behavior of materials and systems.
This workshop aims to gather current and potential Finnish users of synchrotron light and neutrons in the field of biobased materials to learn about the opportunities at MAX IV and ESS. It includes presentations by invited speakers from the facilities and examples from their use in bio-based materials research, followed by an afterwork networking event to establish personal contacts and initiate collaborations.
