Event Name

SS-VII. Size-Strain VII. Diffraction Analysis of the Microstructure of Materials

Start Date 21st Sep 2015
End Date 24th Sep 2015

Following the previous two meetings held in Garmisch (V) and Giens (VI), the present conference deals with materials microstructure and properties, as they can be studied by diffraction methods, with a special interest in the application of diffraction techniques to polycrystalline materials, methodologies for the study of lattice defects, residual stress and texture in thin films, surfaces and nanostructures, line-broadening analysis, line-profile fitting and modelling based on fundamental parameters for applications in materials science problems. New topics, added at SS-VI, were microbeam diffraction and coherent diffraction. SS-VII will add X-ray and neutron imaging, and PDF (pair distribution function) analysis to the list of methodologies covered.

 The seventh Size-Strain conference will take place in the historic city of Oxford. Scientific sessions will take place at the University of Oxford's Department of Engineering Science and accommodation will be available to book in nearby Trinity College. A half day trip to Diamond and ISIS will be arranged and transport provided.

 Co-chairs: Ian Robinson (UCL) and Alexander Korsunsky (Oxford)
