After recent modernization completed in 2011, the IBR high flux pulsed reactor renewed a regular operation and realization of the User Programme. Neutron scattering research at IBR-2 reactor covers different fields of condensed matter physics, materials science, chemistry, biophysical, geophysical and engineering sciences. At present, 200 experiments per year are performed by scientists from more than 20 countries at IBR-2 instruments in the framework of the User Programme.
The aim of the Conference on Condensed Matter Research at IBR-2 reactor, playing the role of the User Meeting, is to bring together the users of the neutron facility for discussion of recent experimental results, prospects of future research and development of IBR-2 instruments.
The topics of the Conference will highlight results of interdisciplinary research and development of neutron instruments and techniques, including:- Functional and nanostructured materials;
- Magnetic colloid systems;
- Layered magnetic nanostructures;
- Carbon nanostructures;
- Materials under extreme conditions;
- Soft condensed matter (biological nanosystems, lipid membranes, polymers);
- Lattice and molecular dynamics of materials;
- Texture and properties of rocks and minerals;
- Residual stresses in materials and products;
- Neutron imaging;
- Development of IBR-2 instruments;
- Development of neutron scattering techniques;
- Development of neutron detectors.
Programme of the Conference includes plenary reports (40 min), topic reports (20 min) and poster presentations.
The Working languages - Russian and English.
