On June 18-19, 2013 the workshop Neutrons for Functional Materials took place in Erlangen. The Interdisciplinary Center for Nanoanalysis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM) and the Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM) of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg organized it in cooperation with the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum.
The aim of the two-day workshop was to bring together experts for neutron research of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) and researchers of EAM for extensive exchange and discussion.The high interaction potential of the two centers (EAM & MLZ) was demonstrated in the inspiring talks. The researchers of the MLZ gave comprehensive introductions to their instrumental methods and research interests, while the EAM researchers presented an overview of their research within the EAM. An introduction of the neutron methods and the neutron research facility in Garching was presented by Prof. W. Petry, one of the scientific directors of the FRM II and MLZ. More at the event's page.
