Aim and scope of the workshop

This workshop aims to discuss the scientific applications of powder diffraction using detectors with 2-dimensional sensitivity, in particular large area and large solid-angle detectors. While mainly concerned with neutron powder diffraction, the workshop will include some presentations dealing with x-ray diffraction.

The scientific domains center on condensed matter structural studies: nano-materials, disordered crystals, Pair-Distribution Function (PDF) analysis, materials chemistry, structural kinetics, texture and strain, magnetism, materials under extreme conditions, Earth materials, superconductivity.

Instruments discussed include 3 neutron diffractometers at the ILL: D19, (Super-)D2B, and a proposed extreme-conditions diffractometer, as well as neutron diffractometers at ISIS (U.K.), FRM-II (Munich), SNS (USA), ANSTO (Australia), and a few x-ray diffractometers at synchrotrons such as the ESRF (Grenoble).

Although the emphasis of the workshop is on the scientific results and future possibilities offered by 2-dimensional detectors in powder diffraction and disordered materials diffraction, some presentations will also discuss the technical aspects of such detectors.

The PD2DD organisers are pleased to welcome 67 participants from 12 different countries to a workshop programme of 12 invited talks and about 20 posters. The invited speakers are mostly from outside the ILL, and the poster sessions emphasize the contributions of thesis students and postdocs. The workshop will terminate with an open discussion.
