Welcome to NEUWAVE-12!

The 12th edition of the Neutron Wavelength-Dependent Imaging Workshop (NEUWAVE-12) is set to take place from September 1st to September 4th, 2024, in Lund, Sweden. The NEUWAVE workshops gather prominent researchers worldwide in the field of energy-resolved neutron imaging, a cutting-edge methodology leveraging the energy/wavelength dependency of neutron transmission for enhanced quantitativity. NEUWAVE strives to promote collaboration and advance energy-resolved neutron imaging by facilitating the exchange of information and experiences in an intimate workshop setting. Key topics of the NEUWAVE workshop encompass the current status of neutron imaging instruments, the evolution of imaging methods (such as Bragg-edge imaging, resonance absorption imaging, and imaging utilizing neutron interference effects or polarized neutrons), the advancement of detectors and instrumentation, and applications of energy-resolved techniques.

The ODIN instrument at the European Spallation Source, set to receive first neutrons next year, can be considered one of the outcomes of the discussions and collaborations nurtured by NEUWAVE, exemplifies the success of the NEUWAVE workshop series.

Previous NEUWAVE workshops were held in various locations:

  • 2008: Garching, Germany
  • 2009: Abingdon, UK
  • 2010: Sapporo, Japan
  • 2011: Gatlinburg, USA
  • 2013: Lund, Sweden
  • 2014: Garching, Germany
  • 2015: Mito, Japan
  • 2016: Abingdon, UK
  • 2017: NIST, USA
  • 2019: PSI, Switzerland
  • 2023: Tokyo, Japan


NEUWAVE-12 will commence with the traditional walking discussion on Sunday, September the 1st. We will take the ferry to the beautiful island Ven, formerly home to danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. More details about the walking discussion will be shared soon.

The main workshop sessions are scheduled from September 2nd to 4th at AF Borgen in central Lund, featuring both oral and poster presentations. Following the NEUWAVE tradition, a limited number of oral presentations will be accepted to allow substantial discussion time for each topic. A workshop dinner is planned for one evening during the workshop. A visit to the ESS facility is scheduled for the last day of the conference (a unique chance before the start of the facility!).

Additionally, a workshop on ncrystal (library for thermal neutron transport in crystals and other materials: will be held on Thursday, 5 Sep at the ESS site.
