Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung

This workshop is thought as impulse for the industrial and materials science community around BAM to the use of such expensive but indeed invaluable tools. It aims at giving an overview of what is currently established and ready-to-go, and what is under development at such large scale facilities. A fan of techniques and materials science problems will be discussed, from imaging techniques to stress determination, hosting world experts in the field.

Large scale facility research, namely at Neutron Sources and Synchrotron Rings, offers world-class materials characterization. The superior properties of Neutrons (penetration capability, types of interaction) and the brilliance of Synchrotron sources indeed offer capabilities unequalled by lab equipment.

While access to both neutron and synchrotron facilities is neither cheap nor continuous (unlike some laboratory equipment), scientific arguments have to date been identified why we should use such sources and even expand their capacity. So, the European Spallation Source is upcoming and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility will be strongly upgraded.

The grand goal is that the industrial community could invest more (time and money) in such instruments, and leverage on their unique capabilities to solve technological problems, thereby increasing their impact on society.


The symposium will be hosted by BAM and will take place in Berlin on 9th to 10th of March, 2020.

Please note: Travel and accommodation costs shall be covered by the participants.

There is no participation fee for the event. Coffee breaks during the symposium will be provided by BAM.

We can host max 100 participants. A compulsory registration should be made by February 29th, 2020 at
