Last updated :2018-09-05

Topic: Opportunities for Research & Collaboration using Australia's OPAL Research Reactor
Speaker: Dr. Jamie Schulz
(Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering)
Host: Associate Professor SHEN Bing, Professor WANG Meng
Time: 2:00-3:30 pm, Wednesday, September 5, 2018
Venue: 3rd Floor, Chit Sang Hall, Guangzhou South Campus, SYSU

Abstract:
The Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) utilises neutrons from Australia’s multi-purpose research reactor, OPAL, to solve complex research and industrial problems for Australian and international users via merit-based access and user-pays programs. Neutron scattering techniques provide the research community and industry with unique tools to study the structure, dynamics and properties of a range of materials, helping scientists understand why materials have the properties they do, and helping tailor new materials.

An overview of the ACNS neutron scattering capabilities at the OPAL reactor will be given together with a selection of scientific and industry case studies.

About the speaker:
Jamie Schulz is the Leader of the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) at the Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation (ANSTO). He joined ANSTO in 2002 originally as an instrument scientist and has held a number of roles within ANSTO and the Bragg Institute. Jamie completed his PhD at the University of Sydney in 2000 after which he joined the Small-Angle Neutron Scattering group at the NIST Centre for Neutron Research. His scientific roots originate in the colloid and interface community where he utilised neutron scattering to probe these systems.
