Materials science in the virtual neutron facility https://pan-training.eu/materials/materials-science-in-the-virtual-neutron-facility This short course allows you to investigate the properties of a rehargeable battery by neutron experiments at a virtual neutron faclity. Specifically you will investigate the various component of the battery by imaging, diffraction and quasi-elastic neutron scattering through  a learning game.The game was developed as a collaboration between Labster and  the group of Linda Udby at Niels Bohr Institite, University of Copenhagen. The development of the game was made possible by a grant in the Education 2016 project of University of Copenhagen. virtual neutron facility, material science, rechargeable battery, imaging, diffraction, quasi-elastic neutron scattering, neutron experiments

IR spectromicroscopy and imaging with six decades of dynamic range https://pan-training.eu/materials/ir-spectromicroscopy-and-imaging-with-six-decades-of-dynamic-range Speaker: Dr Ferenc Borondics, SMIS Beamline Manager, SOLEIL, France Infrared spectroscopy has been in scientists’ toolbox for more than a century to obtain information about vibrational properties and low energy electrodynamics of materials. The beginning of the 80s brought the first commercial infrared microscopes to look into fine details. Far-field infrared spectromicroscopy had been pushed to its limits in the 90s at synchrotron facilities by exploiting the unrivaled quality of synchrotron radiation, i.e., low angular divergence and extremely high bandwidth. Synchrotron infrared spectromicroscopy beamlines provide diffraction-limited spatial resolution covering the whole IR range and enable experiments impossible otherwise. Later, the implementation of two-dimensional IR detectors allowed hyperspectral imaging of large samples with high spatial resolution. The turn of the century brought the advent of near-field IR techniques breaking through the diffraction limit. Combining high-brightness IR sources with atomic force microscopes to detect photothermal expansion or near-field scattering allows measurements hundreds of times below the diffraction limit reaching as high as ten-nanometer spatial resolution. Optically sampled photothermal spectromicroscopy has recently become available to bridge the resolution gap between the nanometer and micrometer range. We combine these techniques at the SMIS beamline to enable six orders of magnitude spatial dynamic range in infrared spectromicroscopy and support scientific discovery by exploiting the synchrotron source through commercial and custom instrumentation. In this talk, I will highlight discoveries made by SMIS staff and users enabled by the beamline’s capability and comment on the benefits of emerging, alternative sources. infrared spectromicroscopy, imaging PaN Community beamline users scientists
