03 Jul 2018



The PNCMI conference will be held in Milton Hill near Abingdon, UK, on the 3rd - 6th July 2018.




Abstract Submission and Conference Registration the 2018 PNCMI (Polarised Neutrons for Condensed-Matter Investigations) International Conference is now OPEN.

The PNCMI conference will be held in Milton Hill near Abingdon, UK, on the 3rd - 6th July 2018. (www.miltonoxfordshire.co.uk).

 More information ​can be found in this poster.

The conference will cover the latest condensed-matter investigations using polarised neutrons and state-of-the-art methodologies and techniques of polarised-neutron production and utilisation for novel instrumentation and experiments, with emphasis on prospects for new science and instrument concepts as well as combining neutrons with complementary techniques and in-situ secondary measurements.

PNCMI is the most comprehensive conference on the latest scientific research using polarised neutrons and on related instrumentation development. The topics will include:      

  • Magnetic structures  
  • Nano-structures and thin-films
  • Quantum and frustrated magnetism
  • Strongly correlated electron materials
  • Soft matter and biology
  • Polarized neutron instrumentation     
  • Functional materials science 
  • Methods and devices
  • Fundamental physics
  • Data analysis

The conference will include a tour of the polarised-neutron facilities at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.

There will also be a Polarized Neutron School for students held before the main meeting on the 1st – 2nd of July 2018 at ISIS.

Abstracts submission and registration is now OPEN on the conference website - www.pncmi2018.org

  • Abstract submission deadline: - 1 May 2018
  • Registration deadline: - 8 June 2018
