The 9th AONSA/The 2nd Neutron and Muon School Meet@MLF

The 200th Topical Symposium of the Magnetics Sciety of Japan/The 51st Topical Symposium of Magnetism

The Fabrication and Characterization of Magnetic Materials
- Characterization techniques using large-scale experimental facilities -

13-14 January 2015, IQBRC, Tokai

In general terms, techniques for characterizing magnetic materials can be conveniently divided into two groups: those that are laboratory-based and those that are available at large-scale experimental facilities. In this Symposium, materials characterization techniques using synchrotron X-ray, neutron and muon beams produced at large-scale experimental facilities, such as SPring-8 and J-PARC, will be introduced.

The symposium will open with a presentation by a materials fabrication expert on the topic of recent trends in magnetic materials research and the potential application of synchrotron X-ray, neutron and muon beams as characterization tools. This will be followed by a series of presentations that demonstrate the usefulness of synchrotron X-ray, neutron and muon based techniques in the study of real materials and describe the type of information that these techniques can provide.

At the end of Day 1, participants are invited to join a guided tour of the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility of J-PARC (J-PARC/MLF).
