Pulsed Neutrons for Materials Discovery

This
talk provides an overview of the merits & strengths of neutron-scattering
techniques for materials discovery [1], as illustrated by the current research
programme of the Molecular Spectroscopy
Group
at the ISIS Pulsed Neutron &
Muon Source,
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, United Kingdom [2,3]. With the
novice in mind, I will explain & illustrate with recent examples the uniqueness
of pulsed neutrons to explore a broad & growing range of structural &
dynamical phenomena in novel functional materials, with an emphasis on energy applications
& sustainability. I will also highlight existing & emerging synergies
with computational materials modelling, as well as recent & ongoing developments
for in-situ and operando neutron science under realistic conditions of industrial
relevance.
