NRC Neutron Reflectometry WorkshopPosted on March 30, 2006
NRC Canadian Neutron Beam Centre in Chalk River is running a one-day workshop this Summer on neutron reflectometry: a powerful tool for research in nanostructured materials. The workshop coincides with the commissioning of a new instrument in the suite of neutron spectrometers at the lab: a dedicated reflectometer. The new instrument will be world-class; it is being built by the University of Western Ontario, NRC and 13 partners.
Neutron diffraction probes molecular structures and dynamics. Neutron reflectometry however looks at longer length-scale structures up into the nanometre range. It is a powerful technique for investigating surfaces and interfaces, thin films, nanostructures, biomembranes and magnetic films. Neutrons can probe buried interfaces within samples, and measure transient effects as changes occur under conditions of heat, pressure, acidity, humidity or other environmental variables.
