Conference: Neutrons for Italy: opportunities for new developments in science with neutrons

neutroni 6th December 2013 ore 09:00 – 18:00

CNR headquarters in Rome, Piazzale Aldo Moro
Aula Convegni

The conference is organized by the DSFTM for the CNR at the initiative of the Presidents of CNR, INFN and ST. It aims to highlight the vitality of the industry, the scientific impact (also outside the scope of physics) and industrial ones, as well as training activities and training for young researchers and technicians. It also aims to identify a shared line of development of the use of ESS neutron sources, ILL and ISIS starting from the emerging needs of the Italian scientific community.

News: Competing quantum effects on the kinetic energy of protons in water

iceberg_gio_0Quantum mechanics plays an important role in determining the structure and dynamics of water, down to the level of the atomic nuclei. Sometimes, nuclear quantum effects (NQEs) along different molecular axes compete with each other and partially cancel each other out. This phenomenon is thought to play a role in determining the melting and boiling temperatures of water. Now for the first time, scientists have experimentally observed that two large components of NQEs partially cancel each other out to result in a small net effect on the melting and boiling points of water.

ALLEGATO III_LOCANDINA ROADSHOW 2013The infrastructure ESRF, ILL and ISIS for research areas of CNR

Following the conference on European Infrastructure last February to CNR, ROADSHOWS 2013 aims to promote research opportunities and how to access at the Research Infrastructures (RI) Synchrotron Light ESRF (Grenoble, F) and Neutron, ILL (Grenoble, F) and ISIS (Oxfordshire, UK). The initiative is based on an idea of ​​the President of the CNR as a result of his visits to the above infrastructure, “[…] I have strengthened even more convinced that we must consolidate the Italian participation in large research facilities, participation in which allows our researchers to continue producing high-level knowledge, to carry out frontier research and develop cutting-edge methodologies for a wide range of potential applicazioni.Tenuto account that the CNR participation is open to a consistent improvement, it has been agreed with the management of European laboratories of Grenoble and Oxfordshire action of ‘awareness’ at all of our departments on the potential of these large research infrastructures in areas such as environment, energy, materials, health, cultural heritage. “

ROADSHOWS 2013 is aimed at presenting the potential and opportunities for research at ESRF, ILL and ISIS, the European research infrastructures with which the CNR research collaborations and established international agreements. E ‘addressed to the CNR researchers, universities and research institutions and Italian institutions.

Fourteen roadshows were planned at ADR CNR, during each of which national and international experts will present:
a) the three infrastructures, their mode of access and preparation of experimental proposals;
b) the beam lines and the available experimental techniques;
c) the most significant scientific results in each of the seven subject areas identified and corresponding to those of the CNR Departments skills, namely:

  • Engineering, ICT and Technology for Energy and Transport Energy and IT
  • Science Bio-Agri-Food Science
  • Biomedical Sciences – Biomedical Science
  • Chemistry and Technology of Materials – Chemistry and Materials Technology
  • Science and Technology of the Earth System for the Environment – Environment and Earth Science
  • Physical Sciences and Technologies of Materia- Physics and Technologies of Matter Human and Social Sciences, Cultural Heritage – Cultural Heritage
  • The Roadshows provide for the participation of representatives of the three infrastructure and will conclude with a conference at the headquarters of the CNR.
