Virtual Infrastructure for Scientific Analysis (VISA) Workshop https://pan-training.eu/materials/virtual-infrastructure-for-scientific-analysis-visa-workshop We invite you to view our workshop – hosted jointly by ExPaNDS and PaNOSC! VISA provides remote data analysis services giving access to experimental data, analysis software, compute infrastructure and expert-user support (IT and Scientific). The online half-day Workshop is open to all external stakeholders (especially scientists and IT staff but not limited to). We aim to demonstrate to beamline scientists the possibilities offered by VISA for data analysis and gathering IT staff around the table to discuss about the development and further deployment of the platform. VISA has been developed at a critical time (during the COVID-19 crisis) to answer data analysis needs and allowing remote instrument control. It provides simplified access for scientists to data analysis tools, offers remote support to users from experts and allows them to remotely control their experiments with the assistance of on-site instrument scientists. VISA allows a user to use the Remote Desktop as if they were sitting in front a data treatment workstation at the host institute and embeds JupyterLab directly accessible from the same platform interface. Initially developed at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France and further deployed in the context of PaNOSC, VISA enables the PaN research infrastructures (PaN RIs) to work together on further scientific collaborations to solve 21st century challenges. The first session of the workshop showcases the implementation of VISA at the PaN RIs through ExPaNDS and PaNOSC partner’ demos and illustrate its use for scientific users and others. The second session in the afternoon focuses on presentations on VISA development and deployment (on OpenStack and other infrastructures), paving the way for a roundtable discussion on the future of VISA: sustainability and future collaborations. Video recording (direct link to vimeo) will be available soon. VISA, expands, PaNOSC, remote data analysis services

Neutrons4Science: Enter the world of neutrons! Just be curious! https://pan-training.eu/materials/neutrons4science-enter-the-world-of-neutrons-just-be-curious Enter the world of neutrons! They are a powerful and highly acclaimed tool not only for the study of condensed matter (the world we live in) but also for confirming our current understanding of physics. What's more, you don't even need to be a scientist to use Neutrons4Science. Just be curious! Neutrons and protons are elementary particles constituting the nucleus of atoms. The neutron has no electric charge but has a spin and a magnetic moment. Neutron beams - like beams of X-rays, electrons or muons - are valuable tools for studying the multitude of materials that surround us in our daily lives (alloys, magnets, superconductors, polymers, colloids, proteins, biological systems, …). However, the way neutrons interact with matter is quite unique and, as a result, it can often reveal to us what is normally hidden. With Neutrons4Science you can discover one of the many types of neutron spectroscopy. The neutron also answers questions on the very foundations of physics, helping us to solve some of the great mysteries of the universe (Is the Grand Unified Theory valid? Is there a fifth fundamental force? ...) As an example, Neutrons4Science gives you insights to a brand new method of neutron spectroscopy that takes advantage of the quantum states of this light neutral particle. Neutrons4Science lets you experience neutron science through three interactive 3D animations: • ThALES: Use a neutron spectrometer (ILL ThALES) as if you were performing a real experiment. • Magnons: Discover the spin waves that exist inside magnetic materials and understand how ThALES can observe them. • GRANIT: Discover an innovative gravitational spectrometer (ILL GRANIT) based on neutron quantum states in a gravitational field. These three educational animations were developed with the help of scientists at the "Institut Laue-Langevin", one of the world's flagship facilities for neutron science. This project was funded by the ILL and the LPSC and developed by Ipter (out of business since 2015). neutron, ILL ThALES, neutron spectrometer, Magnons, gravitational spectrometer, GRANIT general public
