Evolution of structure and composition at interfaces between materials affects a large variety of intrinsic and functional parameters defining interaction and reaction schemes. The analytical techniques capable of exploring the interfaces are still very limited, and more often only ex situ studies are performed. Neutron techniques are capable of operando studies of interfaces, of visualization of buried interfaces and interactions, and of probing interfacial kinetics and dynamics. They have become an extensively growing field of research.
The JCNS Workshop 2017 aims at highlighting recent approaches and developing ideas on the adaptation of neutron reflectometry, small angle neutron scattering, neutron spectroscopy, neutron imaging and depth profiling, and neutron spin echo spectroscopy.
It will discuss current requirements and developments in probing surfaces and interfaces using such techniques. In particular the workshop is devoted to novel and upcoming experimental opportunities with various new instruments in operation or planned at neutron facilities to discuss the scientific options and capabilities in this area.
