The first edition of the "Sustainable Energies and Neutron Scattering" - SENS2016 - conference aims at highlighting topical scientific activities in the investigation of energy relevant systems using neutron scattering and to generate new applications. The SENS conference will give the opportunity for reinforcing the bridges between the neutron experts and the energy communities. Neutron users will benefit from an ideal showcase for their research and newcomers will get a good overview over the scientific potential via contact with experts in the neutron field.
The development of a sustainable society requires advanced energy technology and related innovation, for which many concepts are concerned: separating (e.g. gas mixture), extracting (gas hydrate, asphaltens, oils…), vectoring (storing gas such as hydrogen), producing (oxygen/proton conduction, fuel cells…), converting (photovoltaic, thermoelectricity…) and storing (batteries, supercapacitors…).
The understanding of physical and chemical processes met in these various concepts constitutes a key point to optimize current technologies and to create future energy devices. Neutron scattering addresses several energy questions due to its sensitivity to light elements or to its high penetration level into materials, for instances.
The SENS-2016 conference aims at highlighting topical scientific activities in the investigation of energy relevant systems using neutron scattering and to generate new applications. This first edition of the SENS conference gives the opportunity for reinforcing the bridges between the neutron experts and the energy communities.
The conference programme will include severals topics : Fuel cell and electrolysers, Gas storage, Bioenergy, Solar energy, Batteries, Energy-related Materials (magnetocaloric, thermoelectric, etc…).
You are very welcome to submit your abstract via the conference website.
The DEADLINE has been extended to March 31st, 2016.
