An excellent video explaining the basics of neutron scattering is available here from Prof. Cantargi.
These videos are currently hosted on Youtube. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to AONSA members in China who may not be able to access them.
The AONSA newsletter has the latest news from around the region, with updates from facilities and user groups. The February 2021 edition is now available for download here:
It includes research highlights from the community, and announcement of the AONSA prize and Young Research Fellowship.
In the February 2021 edition, one of the highlights pictured in the Figure for this post, discusses the effect of long-term neutron irradiation on graphite, with work performed at the National Facility for Neutron Research, and is published in Phys Rev B, 102, 064103 (2020).
Dr. Teng Lu (The Australian National University)1, Dr. Indri Badria Adilina (Indonesian Institute of Science)2, and Dr. Rezwanul Haque (University of the Sunshine Coast)3 are selected for the AONSA Young Research Fellowship 2021.
