2022/06/01 ANSTO-HZB Neutron School

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin (HZB) are pleased to announce another instalment of the ANSTO – HZB Neutron School to be held in 2022. This follows the first successful joint school in 2019 and the long tradition of neutron schools being held in Berlin.

The aim of the school is to provide a broad overview of new scattering theory and applications to demonstrate the utility of neutron scattering science. The course will consist of lectures and practicals using the neutron beam instruments at the OPAL Multipurpose Reactor. Subjects covered include basic theory, instrumentation, small-angle scattering, reflectometry, deuteration, crystallography and diffraction, imaging, residual stress and strain scanning, inelastic scattering, quasi-elastic scattering, and polarised neutrons. There will also be a demonstration of sample environment equipment and a tutorial on writing proposals. Students will have the opportunity to present their work to fellow participants and ANSTO and HZB staff in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the school poster session.

The school is particularly suited to those who are new to neutron scattering and is aimed at students (Honours, Masters, PhD) and early career researchers. Those encourage to apply are studying in the areas of:

2022/05/12 International Conference on Battery for Renewable Energy and Electric Vehicles (ICB-REV) 2022

The abstract submission deadline is extended until 25 May 2022. For further details, kindly visit the website:

Following the event, the NBRI also will conduct the Youth Ideas Competition (YIC) 2022 ( and International Battery School (IBS) 2022 ( Therefore, I need your help to encourage abstract submission to ICB-REV 2022 from your members and countries. And also distribute the information to your colleagues, members, students, and other relevant parties.

2021/12/08 UCANS9 will be held online from March 28 to 31, 2022

The news is original from the Official Website :
At the UCANS-WEB meeting held in December 2020, we announced that UCANS9 would be held in 2021, but we have not been able to move forward.

We have been hoping to hold UCANS9 onsite somehow and have been keeping an eye on the situation.

The situation in the COVID-19 seems to be improving little by little, but it seems that it will take some time before free international travel is allowed.

The current situation where there are very few opportunities for presentations is an important life-altering issue, especially for young researchers, and we decided to hold the conference online because we believe it should not be delayed too long.

The presentations at UCANS9-online will consist of oral and poster sessions.

Due to time constraints, the majority of presentations will be assigned to posters.

Poster session presenters will be asked to make a short video in advance.

We accept presentations in a wide range of fields, including accelerators, targets, shielding, moderators, measurement, materials, control systems, beam transport, medical applications, cross sections, neutron physics, instrument concepts, facility introduction, etc.

We are looking forward to your registration.

2021/06/30 悼念陳守信院士/Tributes to Professor Sow-Hsin Chen

Professor Show-Hsin Chen, Emeritus Professor of the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE), Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a global expert in neutron science. He passed away on June 26 in West Newton, Massachusetts, at 86.

Professor Show-Hsin Chen has made outstanding academic contributions on neutron, x-ray, laser scattering research, and complex fluid and soft matter science, including the theory of phonon spectrum analysis, light correlation scattering, laser Doppler velocimeter measurement technology in the early year. He developed neutron scattering technology in complex fluid at his middle-aged, the analysis method of inelastic X-ray scattering. Recently, he focused on the dynamics of ultracold water and interfacial water molecules. Professor Show-Hsin created several new research fields or application technology. These theories regard as classic and foundation in many academic fields.

He fully supported Taiwan's neutron scattering research all his life. At the first Taiwan Neutron User Conference in 2010, Professor Chen was invited to attend as a Distinguished speaker and provided many positive suggestions. In 2012, he donated to Tsinghua University to create the "Sow-Hsin Chen Distinguished. Lectureship on Neutron Science and Technology" Every one to two years, international experts and scholars are invited to Taiwan to hold academic lectures on various topics of neutron science. Exchange the latest neutron science and technology to local scholars.

The death of Professor Chen Shouxin is a great loss for the neutron science community. All members of the society express their reluctance and pay their highest tribute to Professor Show-Hsin Chen.

Sow-Hsin Chen Distinguished. Lectureship on Neutron Science and Technology,c84.php

陳守信院士麻省理工學院核子科學與工程學系 (NSE) 名譽教授 。是中子散射研究的權威。於 6 月 26 日在馬薩諸塞州西牛頓市過世,享年86歲。

陳守信教授在學術上貢獻卓越,是中子、X光及雷射散射研究及複雜流體和軟物質科學之權威。早期所發展的聲子圖譜分析理論、光關連散射、雷射都卜勒速度儀量測技術、到中年的複雜流體之中子散射應用理論、非彈性X 光散射分析理論、與近期的超冷水及界面水分子之動態特性研究,無一不是開創一個新的研究領域或是應用技術。同時亦為後進學者視為基石的經典理論。

他的一生一直支持著台灣的中子散射研究。2010年第一屆台灣中子用戶會議時,陳教授便以Distinguished speaker的身分應邀出席,並提供許多積極的建議。2012年更於母校清華大學捐款創設「陳守信中子科學與技術榮譽講座」,每一至二年,邀請國際知名專家學者來台,就中子科學的各種面向主題,舉行學術演講活動,藉此增進本地學者的中子科學技術交流,並提升相關的國際視野。他不但心心念念將其所學貢獻給他生長的土地,陳教授所留下的講座,也可以持續地提攜後進,幫助台灣的學術成長。
