Neutron Scattering Group

RSC logo

The Neutron Scattering Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups and is joint with the Institute of Physics (IoP). The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


To be the focal point for all members of the RSC and IoP with an interest in neutron scattering techniques.


  • To disseminate information about the neutron facilities available to as wide an audience as possible, particularly to newer entrants to the field and to those who work in related areas but who may occasionally wish to utilise neutron scattering techniques.
  • To circulate a newsletter to Group members two or three times each year.
  • To organise informal one, two or three-day meetings/conferences covering various aspects of neutron scattering. These may range from the more fundamental aspects of condensed matter research to applied neutron scattering with increased participation from industrial concerns.
  • To host a regular introductory summer school to cover basic theory and recently developed techniques.  
  • To collaborate with other groups and societies in connection with more general conferences allowing the comparison of neutron scattering methods with other techniques.  

Get Involved

We are always looking for new members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.
