Dutch User organisation for Accelerator-based Light Sources (DUALIS)
The general mission of the Dutch User organisation for Accelerator-based Light Sources (DUALIS) is to strengthen the Dutch user community and its competitiveness for experiment time at international accelerator-based light sources including synchrotrons and free electron lasers (FELs). DUALIS aims to improve the information-exchange between users and council/committee members of these facilities. We will keep the Dutch user community informed of relevant developments via our newsletter (subscribe below) and bring the various involved parties together via user assembly meetings.
DUALIS is connected to the European facilities via ESUO, the European Synchrotron and FEL user organisation.
DUALIS @ NWO Physics 2023
Learn more about DUALIS – the Dutch User organisation for Accelerator-based Light Sources - during NWO Physics on Tuesday, April 5th at 16h.
In a focus session chaired by Elias Vlieg, Britta Redlich and Moniek Tromp will present the goals of DUALIS and links to, European initiatives ESUO and LEAPS, as well as the Dutch involvement in the ESRF and our national large-scale research infrastructures.
Two experienced, long-term users at FELIX and ESRF - Sandra Lang (Ulm University) and Giuseppe Portale (University of Groningen) showcase in their presentations distinct applications of infrared spectroscopic and X-ray scattering techniques.
The session concludes with an open panel discussion with the speakers and the audience in order to connect to the Dutch User Community and open the discussion platform for future needs.
News & research
The effect of cast film extrusion processing conditions, such as the chill-roll temperature, temperature of the melt, and line speed, on the structure of different isotactic polypropylene homo- and random copolymers has been investigated by means of Small- and Wide-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS and WAXS) and correlated to stiffness and haze.
