BNC webinar: Neutron Imaging in Energy Research
The CERIC Hungarian partner facility, the Budapest Neutron Centre, has organized the new webinar series on the research, development and new trends in renewable energy, including important contributions from neutron techniques all over the world.
The BNC webinars are given biweekly, on Wednesday afternoons, by local and international experts in English.
Next BNC webinar:
Neutron Imaging in Energy Research
Wednesday, 20 January, 2021 / 14:00 – 14:45 (CET) + discussion
Speaker: Nikolay Kardjilov (Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin)
Imaging techniques based on neutron beams are rapidly developing and have become versatile non-destructive analysing tools in many research fields. Due to their intrinsic properties, neutrons differ strongly from electrons, protons or X-rays in terms of their interaction with matter: they penetrate deeply into most common metallic materials while they have a high sensitivity to light elements such as hydrogen, hydrogenous substances or lithium. This makes neutrons perfectly suited probes for research on materials that are used for energy storage and conversion, e.g. batteries, hydrogen storage, fuel cells, etc.
This talk will focus on recent applications of neutron imaging techniques in the field of energy research, illustrated by examples selected from
