Aim of the Workshop


The development of new materials for energy relies to a large extent on a profound understanding of the multi-scale origins of their properties. Intense synchrotron X-ray and neutron beams, with their capacity to probe matter from the atomic to the macro scale, contribute significantly to this objective and are expected to play an even more important role in the future.


To facilitate the sharing of information on the latest developments on this crucial area of science and technology and to favour close cooperation between the users of large scale facilities with academic and industrial actors of the energy materials field, you are invited to participate in the workshop on Advanced Energy Materials Studied by Synchrotron X-ray and Neutron Techniques in Grenoble on February 7, 2011.

The programme of this workshop will cover current topics and most recent progress in the analysis by X-rays and neutrons of the properties of materials for energy conversion, harvesting, storage and economy. There will be a particular focus on materials for batteries, fuel cells, hydrogen storage, light weight materials, and photovoltaic, solid state lighting and thermoelectricity.

The programme will consist of invited lectures by internationally recognized specialists, completed by contributed talks, a poster session and a panel discussion. 

This workshop is co-organized by the ESRF, the ILL and the partners of GIANT.

Registration is now closed.
