15. September 2014 - 19. September 2014 Polarised Neutrons for Condensed-Matter Investigations conference

Sydney, NSW, Australia


The 2014 PNCMI (Polarised Neutrons for Condensed-Matter Investigations) International Conference will be held in Sydney, NSW, Australia, on 15 – 19 September 2014. The conference will cover the latest condensed-matter investigations using polarised neutrons and state-of-the-art methodologies and techniques of polarised-neutron production and utilisation for novel instrumentation and experiments, with emphasis on prospects for new science and new instrument concepts.

The conference will include a tour of the polarised-neutron facilities at the OPAL Research Reactor at ANSTO.
