Third International Workshop SKIN2014

Studying Kinetics with Neutrons

March, 24-27, Grenoble, France

The study of kinetic processes is a growing field in modern science extending from physicsvia chemistry to biology. Neutrons are known to be extremely versatile probes for the investigation of structure and dynamics in condensed matter. The advent of new high intensity neutron sources and instruments, as well as the development of new real-time techniques, allows for the tracking of transformation processes in condensed matter on a microscopic scale. The evolution of structural details can be studied by time-resolved neutron scattering over a broad range of times. For example, new stroboscopic methods such as TISANE allow dynamic processes to be studied on a time scale extended to microseconds. 

The scope of this third SKIN symposium is to bring together scientists from different fields of physics, chemistry, biology, materials and geo-sciences with neutron experts. The meeting will be focussed on results, new applications and future prospects for time-resolved neutron Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Neutron Reflectometry. It is an important aspect of the meeting to see what other experimental techniques achieve in this field and where theoreticians see future challenges.
