MDANSE 2018 - Molecular Dynamics and Lattice Dynamics to Analyse Neutron Scattering Experiments

MDANSE 2018 school intends to train neutron scientists to better design new instruments, but also to make better use of the allocated beam time. It has specialized scope (inelastic scattering, material modelling) and covers many existing or planned neutron scattering instruments. The school will not focus on the data analysis, but rather on all aspects of simulation, from materials to instruments, and present an integrated pipeline.

Following the success of MDANSE 2012 and 2014 at ILL, France, and MDANSE 2016 (https://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/Pages/MDANSE-2016.aspx) at ISIS, UK, this is the next MDANSE  (Molecular Dynamics and Lattice Dynamics to Analyse Neutron Scattering Experiments) school in series. This school also relates to previous neutron scattering instrument simulation McStas schools/workshops in 2006-2016.

Scope : Simulation of Inelastic Neutron Scattering using McStas and  material dynamics models


MDANSE 2018 school intends to train neutron scientists to better design new instruments, but also to make better use of the allocated beam time. It has specialized scope (inelastic scattering, material modelling) and covers many existing or planned neutron scattering instruments. The school will not focus on the data analysis, but rather on all aspects of simulation, from materials to instruments, and present an integrated pipeline.


The school is focused on the calculation of materials dynamics, e.g. dynamic structure factor S(q,w), using both DFT and classical MD codes. This calculation will then be forwarded to full virtual experiments of neutron scattering spectrometers in order to produce realistic simulated data, such as inelastic and quasi-elastic neutron scattering intensity. A set of representative spectrometer descriptions will be proposed to attendees, together with the so-called scattering kernels which model the neutron-matter interaction.


The expected attendees will be either scientists with a strong computational background and collaborating with experimental groups (in particular neutron scattering users) or experimentalists with some previous knowledge of electronic-structure calculations and/or force-field based simulations. Both will learn how to use existing modern tools to compute the measured signal (including instrument effects) starting from an initial structure, down to the neutron scattering intensity, helping to bridge the gap between experiment and simulation.


The school is designed for providing practical training, so the number of participants is limited to 25. In order to select candidates, we ask applicants to state briefly their scientific fields of interest, why they would like to attend the school and previous experience with computer simulations.


A single fee of 200 Euro is requested. (This fee includes a full accommodation, teaching materials, smiles and sun).


Registration is now open and will be closed on 31st May. More details and link to register will be found here.
