Mr. WANG Chen, a year 2 PhD student supervised by Dr. CHEN Yue in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, won the best presentation award in 2018 Croucher Summer Course on Neutron Scattering. His presentation entitled “Inelastic Neutron Scattering Data Analysis on Silicon” incorporates experimental neutron scattering data and theoretical studies based on density functional theory and molecular dynamics simulations during his PhD study at HKU.
Neutron scattering is an indispensable technique to characterize the structure and dynamics of materials. The 5-day intensive Croucher summer course funded by the Croucher Foundation is an introduction to neutron scattering and aims to those postgraduate students who are interested in applying quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques.
