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.

Samples for experiments at PETRA III

Synchrotron beamtime for TIMEleSS

The TIMEleSS group is at the PETRA III synchrotron this week-end. Matthias Krug, Estelle Ledoux, Jeff Gay, Julien Chantel, Carmen Sanchez-Valle, Sébastien Merkel, and special guest Anastasiia Zadoia will be spending some time at P02.2… Two months of sample synthesis, polishing, coating, cutting, and 10 diamond anvil cells loaded. Nights will be shorts for the next four days. Let’s cross fingers, we need data for our next multigrain diffraction datathon!

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.
