Science Director Dimitri Argyriou at European Spallation Source (ESS) is visiting DTU tomorrow (March 30). The ESS neutron source is planned for construction in i Lund, Sweden and is expected to deliver its first beams in 2019.
In connection with the visit Dimitri will give a talk at 11:00 in meeting room 2, building 101 (across from the faculty club). The talk will give a general introduction to the ESS project and related science, plus give an overview of the process toward a running neutron facility at the end of the decade.
Together with the X-ray source MAX-IV (also Lund) the ESS is expected to be of great importance for materials research, biology, physics and nano technology within the Øresund region. Denmark is contributing 1400 MKr. € to the construction costs of ESS, corresponding to 12% and is to house the ESS Data Management and Software Center.
