μSR-oriented activities in the Horizon 2020 project SINE2020


EU funded SINE2020 project is focused on pioneering scientific and technical development to prepare for next-generation large scale facilities (particularly the European Spallation Source).

Involving 18 partner institutes across 12 countries, the project has a broad programme of work that includes developing e-learning materials, funding schools, developing links with industry, contributing methods for sample preparation, evaluating new detector technologies, and developing new software for data analysis and interpretation. 

Muon and neutron methods were seen as closely related complementary techniques, frequently used in tandem by researchers to complete investigations. Furthermore, the co-existence of muon and neutron facilities at two of the national facilities (ISIS and PSI) served to strengthen this link.

Muon focused tasks, reported hereafter, were thus included throughout the project and it was recognised that many of the project activities will be beneficial to both μSR and neutron scattering techniques.
