Thematic network for neutron and muon beam sources

Objective

Objectives:
1. Co-ordination to enhance the overall capabilities at the European Neutron facilities.
2. Networking to encourage an efficient transfer of technology between facilities.
3. Training to have a professional user community.
4. Joint Development to secure future access to World-Class instrumentation and sources.

Results:
Computer simulation on existing and projected neutron instruments by use of the McStas package The McStas package developed at Risø with EU-RTD support is used by roughly 50-1 00 users World Wide. At the workshop the new features of the programme were demonstrated and the future development of McStas planned. Neutron Spin Echo Spectroscopy, future aspects and applications A key issue of the workshop was to discuss how the Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) technique could be developed to take full advantage of the powerful next generation spallation sources, and prepare the corresponding science case.
Protons in Proteins: Biological Applications of Neutron Diffraction A total of 52 participants gathered to discuss the structural role of hydrogen in biological function. Neutrons have played and will continue to play a significant role in structural biology, especially when the complementarity with X-rays is exploited.
