ESS Workshop
The workshop Diffraction @ ESS will take place during the "French Annual Neutron Scattering Meeting (JDNs)" 2022 where we expect to bring together a diverse group of young and expert scientists that will be the future generation of users on the European Spallation Source.

In particular, neutron diffraction represents the first essential technique for the characterization and study of bulk materials. On the future ESS source (and as on already existing spallation sources: ISIS or SNS), time-of-flight neutron diffraction relies on very different data acquisition, reduction and analysis methods from those used on continuous flux reactors.
Our program involves 5 sessions: 1) Specific aspects TOF neutron diffraction, 2) Neutron diffraction at ESS: instruments, acquisition method and data format 3) TOF diffraction data reduction and 4) TOF diffraction data analysis and 5) a poster session for exchange and interaction, gathering world-class instrument scientists.
