Asia-Oceania Network on Neutron Engineering Diffraction
AONET

Neutron diffraction method can measure residual stresses inside materials at centimeter-order depth nondestructively, and it enables us to evaluate bulk-average microstructural factors such as microstrain, texture, dislocation density and block size by analyzing the diffraction profile. In Asia-Oceania region, there are currently eight neutron engineering diffractometers applied to materials engineering researches, however, there was not much opportunity to communicate each other like European community due to geographical problem. In 2011, the Instrument Scientist Workshop was first held at Tsukuba in Japan by delegates from several countries in Asia-Oceania that currently operate a neutron engineering diffractometer to discuss future activities on neutron engineering diffraction in Asia-Oceania region, and establishment of the Asia-Oceania network on neutron engineering diffraction (AONET) has been approved in the workshop.  The AONET provides a place for information sharing, technical exchange and user exchange for not only instrument scientists but also users including potential users in Asia-Oceania countries. Furthermore, we open up to the candidates of instrument scientist from countries in the Asia-Oceania who will soon complete the construction or upgrading their research reactor and equip it with the engineering diffractometer.
