The use of Neutrons and Photons in Earth Sciences

  • Datum: –17.00
  • Plats: Geocentrum Norrland 1, Villavägen 16
  • Föreläsare: Dr. Lawrence Anovitz – Oak Ridge National Laboratory Dr. Stephen Hall – Lund University Prof. Martin King – Royal Holloway, University of London Dr. Zuzana Konopkova - European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility, Hamburg Prof. Ingmar Persson - Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences Dr. Guoyin Shen - Carnegie Institution of Washington
  • Arrangör: Prof. Peter Lazor and Dr. Bjarne Almqvist
  • Kontaktperson: Bjarne Almqvist
  • Seminarium

The purpose of the workshop is to convey the research potential of neutrons (spallation sources) and photons (synchrotron radiation) to geoscientists at Uppsala University.

This potential is largely underexploited at the department today and, considering current developments especially at the Swedish National Synchrotron Laboratory (MAX IV) and the upcoming European Spallation Source (ESS), we would like to increase our readiness, and illustrate the capabilities of these facilities. The target audience consists mainly in PhD students and researchers from the Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University. We expect about 25 participants across fields of mineralogy & petrology, geophysics, paleo-biology, hydrology, meteorology, glaciology, and physical geography.

The workshop is open for 25 participants, and feel free to register by contacting Bjarne Almqvist ( or Peter Lazor (, no later than April 20. There is no registration fee for the workshop, and lunch is included in the participation if you have previously registered.

The workshop is sponsored by the Centre for Neutron Scattering ( and the Centre for Photon Science (
