J-PARC Workshop 2022, Deuterium Science Entering a New Phase

2023-1-19 (Thu) - 2023-1-20 (Fri)


Objective of the meeting

Deuterium labeling methods are widely used in isotope-sensitive research techniques such as neutron scattering and NMR. Deuterium labeling is an important technique to control the scattering contrast in neutron scattering research. Aiming at accelerating the development of deuteration activities, an international workshop “Deuterium Science Entering a New Phase” will be held as a J-PARC Workshop. In this workshop, we invite experts in deuterium labeling and its application to neutron scattering research from Japan and abroad to discuss the recent research topics and findings, and to further promote deuterium labeling research at J-PARC.
