NAMIS2020 Announcement

May 15th-16th, 2020‚Äč

This conference aims to bring together scientists and practitioners of Mössbauer spectroscopy from North America and to also to attract international participants. The Mössbauer Spectroscopy technique is an established method used by many different disciplines including, chemistry, physics, biology, geology, mineralogy, soil science, materials science and archeology and cultural heritage. The addition of synchrotron radiation based techniques has now extended the kind of information that can be extracted to include thermoelastic properties like sound velocity, vibrational specific heat, absolute value of atomic displacement, and phonon density of states. 

Furthermore, experiments under extreme conditions of temperature and pressure have now become common. With its unique depth and breadth, Mössbauer spectroscopy and nuclear resonant scattering of synchrotron radiation will continue to provide detailed understanding of physical, chemical, biological, and geological processes, earthly and extra-terrestrial alike. We plan to bring researchers from these diverse fields together for a two days symposium, and provide a chance to meet with each other in a formal and informal setting.

We particularly encourage student participation by sending their abstracts, which will be evaluated for oral and poster slots.

The event will take place May 15th 2020 8:00 am until May 16th 2020 5:00 pm at the Spallation Neutron Source, Bldg. 8600, Rm. C156. Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge TN 37830

Included with your PAID registration:  Working Lunch on Friday and Saturday, Coffee Breaks, and a Working Dinner (Friday Night).
