IKON 5 : 16 Novel Neutron Instruments Were Proposed

IKON5, the fifth meeting of the instruments in-kind collaboration, was organised 25-26 September 2013. It drew 130 participants from 9 countries, to present their proposals and discuss the other instrument concepts under development. The first day of the meeting was devoted to a neutron technologies fair, where participants had the opportunity to discuss their instrument concepts with the ESS technology groups. The development of novel neutron technologies for ESS is pivotal for the realisation of the next-generation instruments.

The second day held a full program, with presentations of this year’s instrument proposals. Laboratories involved in the different proposals include Copenhagen University, PSI, Aarhus University, EPFL, DTU, FZJ, LLB, TUM, HZG, Rez, INFN Perugia, CNR ISC Florence the TU Delft and ESS. The formal, written proposals are due by the end of October 2013 .
