The 27th North American Catalysis Society Meeting NAM27

Our R&D Lead Scientist Dr Antony Vamvakeros spoke at the 27th North American Catalysis Society Meeting (NAM27) in New York. This biennial meeting is widely recognized as the premier topical catalysis conference for matters related to homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, while also including broad coverage of electro-catalysis and photo-catalysis. He presented our work on diffraction, […]

Team Up for Transfer – KFS Transfer Workshop

Our Director Simon Jacques discussed how to increase the societal benefit of synchrotron radiation sources at the KFS Transfer Workshop with over forty attendees in Berlin. Discussions at the workshop focussed on synchrotron achievements, challenges and ideas for future improvements with three sessions on, “Synchrotron Access for Industrial Research”, “Synchrotron/Industry hardware co-developments” and “Synchrotron/Industry methodological […]

Li-ion battery project collaboration with Teesmat

It was exciting to be involved in this TEESMAT scientific case study. We contributed to the design and acquisition of ex situ X-ray scattering/diffraction tomography measurements of industrially-relevant prolonged cycled Li-ion batteries at beamline ID31 of the ESRF. The data handling of the raw data (ca. 2.25 TB) and the analysis of the ca. 6,500,000 […]

Cross-cluster project close meeting

It was good to see everyone and celebrate at the Cross-cluster project close meeting. It was a very successful project on Accelerating neutron tomography with applied deep learning. We have developed two novel approaches using neural networks to denoise and remove angular undersampling artefacts in tomography datasets; we developed and demonstrated them using neutron tomography […]
