Role at ANSTO

Dr. Shin-ichiro Yano joined NSRRC and is stationed at ANSTO, Sydney, Australia as of November 2014. He is 1st responsible of the cold-neutron triple-axis spectrometer SIKA and helps users to pursuit their neutron and materials science. He has been studying magnetic materials by using pair distribution function analysis (PDF) method, neutron inelastic scattering techniques, and neutron elastic scattering techniques with wide range of neutron spectrometers.
