Diffraction is a standard technique to study arrangements of atoms (crystal structure), alignment, texture and grain structure in hard matter. Similar issues arise in soft matter, where material properties (e.g. mechanical functioning, transport properties, internal surface, optical properties etc) are highly influenced by analogues to these quantities formed by the arrangements of ensembles of molecules, often in a solvent, such as amphilipilic molecules or polymers rather than atoms. The structures formed consequentially occur at longer length-scales, and the role of thermal motions is quite different.

This meeting brings together those working in highly ordered forms of soft matter from biology, polymer science and the colloidal domain with the following objectives:

  • Bringing together a community working in this science field.
  • Discussing instrumentation, and in particular the specific characteristics which are peculiar to these investigations.
  • Defining specific requirements for neutron instruments to enable such research.

The program will have both oral and poster presentations.

Figure. A Chinese puzzle ball consisting of decrative concentric spheres.

Two isostructural and concentric clusters [Cu28(H)15(S2CNR)12]PF6 (NR=NnPr2, aza-15-crown-5) are air- and moisture stable and were prepared through a one pot synthesis.  Researchers from National Dong Hwa University, in collaboration with scientists from Australia and France used a combination of neutron and X-ray diffraction and NMR to determine the structure of this rhombicuboctahedral copper polyhydride complex.  The onion-like structure displays a geometric entity that is reminiscent of a Chinese puzzle ball was characterised on the KOALA diffractometer by measuring over 57,000 reflections.  The presence of capping, truncating, and interstitial hydrides within the metal framework was modeled and reproduced by density functional theory (DFT) calculations.  The core of each copper hydride nanoparticle comprises one central interstitial hydride and eight hydrides that cap the outer triangular faces. A further six truncating hydrides form an unprecedented bridge between the inner and outer copper atom arrays. The irregular inner Cu4 tetrahedron is encapsulated within the Cu24 rhombicuboctahedral cage, which is further enclosed by an array of twelve dithiocarbamate ligands that subtends the truncated octahedron of 24 sulfur atoms, which is concentric with the Cu24 rhombicuboctahedron and Cu4 tetrahedron about the innermost hydride. This Shape, within a shape is reminiscent of ancient Chinese puzzle balls.

A research team including scientists from the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC) has recently measured he low temperature magnetic susceptibility of three Yb3+ cubic pyrochlores and observed a crossover from antiferromagnetic to ferromagnetic ordering as the lattice increases.  These results demonstrated that the application of chemical pressure through the series of Yb-pyrochlores efficiently perturb the fragile quantum spin fluctuations of the Yb3+ ions.  They also highlight the close proximity of Yb2Ti2O7 to a quantum instability, which may explain the current debate in the literature about its exact ground state.

The unit cell of the pyrochlore lattice where the metal ions can create independent, frustrated sublattices of corner sharing tetrahedral.

~New Frontiers in Neutron Macromolecular Crystallography Workshop
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Spallation Neutron Source
July 16-18, 2014
This meeting will bring together scientists to discuss new opportunities for research at the two advanced neutron user facilities (SNS and HFIR) at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Users now have access to some of the world’s most intense neutron beamlines for studying the structure of biological systems using neutron macromolecular crystallography (NMC). 

The advent of the SNS and the construction of MaNDi provide a new and exciting opportunity for NMC to become a routine and essential structural tool for enzymology, structural biology and functional genomics. In order to satisfy the needs of the structural biology community, a dedicated, high-resolution time-of-flight single crystal macromolecular neutron diffractometer (MaNDi) has been constructed at the SNS and is now operational.

An important function of the meeting will be to introduce current and future MNC users to the new beamlines at ORNL and provide lectures on structure refinement using PHENIX and nCNS. New developments will be described that greatly enhance structure refinement.

Scholarships for attendance are available from:
• Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences for those attendees from EPSCOR states (Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands).

The SIKA cold-neutron 3-axis spectrometer, which is operated by the NSRRC, has taken its first neutron scattering patterns.  A diffraction pattern of a common standard Ni was first measured in diffraction mode before the 3rd axis was added to produce an inelastic neutron scattering spectrum of a crystal-field excitation in PrFeO3

A fixed incident energy of 5.11 meV was used and the spectrum shows a scan of the final energy, with the excitation at an energy transfer of around 2 meV. 

SIKA is now working towards getting a full operating license from the regulators and expects users to apply for beam time in the September 2014 call for proposals.
