The Neutron Scattering Group works to promote neutron science actively with its user community. Our aims are to:
- Organise events to develop neutron user links and discuss results from neutron experiments
- Provide links to and from UK-funded neutron sources and the European Neutron Scattering Association
- Represent neutron scattering and its users within the IOP and RSC learned societies
- Support actively early career researchers to engage with neutron scattering
Our mission is to support and develop the UK neutron community in a rapidly changing global neutron landscape, and to represent UK neutron scattering externally.
Additionally, we award the BTM Willis Prize and the Thomas-Penfold Prize annually.
Examples of activities include organising and contributing to conferences and schools involving neutron scattering research, e.g. the Faraday Joint Interest Group Conferences in 2017, 2021 and 2023 the Gordon Research Conferences on Neutron Scattering 2018 and 2019, the biennial Oxford School on Neutron Scattering and the science day as part of the The Neutron and Muon User Meeting 2022.
