TIMEleSS May 2019 datatron

Datatron for the TIMEleSS project

The synchrotron guys of the TIMEleSS project met up for a datatron the second week of May 2019. During a TIMEleSS datatron, we all sit in a room and get moving on data processing from our recent synchrotron experiments! The datatron was attented by M. Krug, E. Ledoux, and J. Gay, PhD students involved in the TIMEleSS project, S. Merkel, the PI for TIMEleSS. We also welcomed 3 guests during this week: J. Wright, from ID11 at ESRF, A. Dewaële from CEA, and M. Bykov from the Bayerisches Geoinstitut. The next TIMEleSS datatron has not been planned yet but may happen later in 2019.

Diamond High-Pressure Workshop, 26/02/2019 - 27/02/2019

TIMEleSS PI giving an invited presentation at the Diamond light source

S. Merkel gave an invited presentation at the Diamond Light Source workshop on high pressure research, in the UK. The workshop aims to bring together high-pressure researchers with different experimental expertise and to highlight the latest developments in high-pressure techniques across synchrotron beamlines. S. Merkel gave a presentation entitled “In situ study of phase transformation mechanisms using multigrain crystallography“. The presentation was an opportunity to present the science at the foundation of the TIMEleSS project, its objectives, and some results.

Second training session on multigrain analysis, February 2019

Second multigrain diffraction training session for TIMEleSS members

The TIMEleSS team is holding its second training session on multigrain diffraction data processing. The session takes place on Feb 11-15 at the Université de Lille, in France. Participants (left to right on the image) include Julien Chantel, our guest Agnès Dewaele, Sébastien Merkel, Jeffrey Gay, Sergio Speziale, Estelle Ledoux, Matthias Krug, and Carmen Sanchez-Valle. The session is an opportunity for all members to get trained in multigrain diffraction data processing but also to standardize our data workflow strategies. More to come soon with the TIMEleSS-tools developed at this occasion!

CREEP Final Workshop Ecole de Physique des Houches (F) 27 January – 1 February 2019

TIMEleSS PI giving invited lecture in Les Houches

This week, two of the TIMEleSS PI’s are attenting the Final Workshop of the CREEP ITN at the Ecole de Physique des Houches, in France. The workshop is held from 27 January to 1 February 2019 in the town of Les Houches, in the Chamonix valley. The CREEP ITN is a EU funded project that proposed an interdisciplinary and multiscale approach to study the origin of rheological complexity in Earth and analogous materials and how it controls the dynamics of our planet, including natural and human-induced seismicity, and affects a large range of industrial applications, from energy production and waste storage to production of high-performance glasses. It included a number of partners, from academia and industry with over 10 PhD[…]
