LENS Webinars: New Directions in Instrumentation

New instruments and upgrades are bringing rapid changes to neutron science and enabling scientists to answer increasingly complex questions. Two upcoming LENS webinars will feature live presentations on novel instrument concepts, followed by an interactive Q&A session. The aim is to generate discussion, to develop new and existing contacts, and to disseminate the current capabilities and developments.

Ultra-high field magnets for neutron scattering: latest developments and possibilities
Dr Mark D. Bird, National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee

The first magnets using High Temperature Superconductors to operate at higher field than Nb-based superconductors have only recently been put into service. Most prominent among them are the 1.2 GHz (28.2 T) NMR magnets delivered by Bruker in 2020 and the 32 T magnet for condensed matter research that met specification in 2017. This webinar will address possibilities for higher field magnets for neutron scattering, focusing on the possibilities opened up by the high temperature superconductors but also touching on dc and pulsed resistive magnets.

The Wolter optics based neutron microscope
Dr Daniel S. Hussey, Physical Measurement Laboratory, NIST

Imaging with neutrons has seen strong development in the past two decades, driven by the rapid improvements in digital cameras and the ability to use the properties of the neutron to generate a variety of image contrasts. This webinar will give an overview of the start of the NIST neutron imaging program and how measurements have been augmented with a simultaneous X-ray source.  Discussion will focus on the current state of the art in neutron microscopy, and the outlook for the field with the nearly completed first neutron equivalent to Hooke’s microscope with lens based on Wolter optics.
