ABOUT DYNAMICS

The thematic "dynamics" addresses time dependent phenomena, such as biological processes, motion of biomolecules and colloids, or transport processes in hard matter, utilizing the accessible time and length scales with neutrons and X-rays, and the coherent properties of MAX IV. Systems and processes studied include equilibrium as well as non-equilibrium phenomena, reversible and irreversible processes, order-disorder transitions, dynamics on different length and time scales, as well as transient states that could for example be studied with pump-probe experiments. We focus in particular on the application and future development of experimental tools such as quasi-elastic neutron scattering (for example neutron spin echo or backscattering experiments), x-ray photon correlation spectroscopy or fast pump probe experiments, and computer simulations performed in order to help und understand experimental data.

CORE GROUP

WORKING GROUPS

DYNAMICS WG 1

DYNAMICS OF BIOLOGICAL MACROMOLECULES  

The working group will address the need to educate future users of ESS, MAX IV and other major research infrastructures in topics related to dynamics of biological macromolecules. We bring together leading scientists from soft matter physics, biology and pharmaceutical sciences, with expertise in experiments, theory and computer simulations and showcase what can be achieved at MAX IV and synchrotrons worldwide.
