The brand new Neutron Reflectivity Simulator in Eclipse ICE and what it took to make it
One common method of determining the exact structure of thin films is to put them into a beam of neutrons and see how the neutrons reflect off the surface. Such experiments require significant time and effort at one of a handful of facilities around the world since highly-collimated neutron beams are not generally available at local hardware stores. Simulating the profile of the reflected neutrons can thus greatly accelerate the research by providing insight on the best cases to study and keeping the final experiment focused and efficient.
This is a beginner level talk that will give attendees a good understanding of some of the scientific capabilities available in Eclipse and how many, seemingly unrelated Eclipse projects and other tools can be integrated in new ways to do amazing things. Attendees will also be given a live demonstration of the tool and provided resources for future reference and engagement. Presentation materials will be provided in advance at www.eclipse.org/ice.
