Jen had a fantastic time at the European Conference for Neutron Scattering (ECNS) this week, in Garching, Munich! This was Jen’s first time at ECNS and the biggest conference she’s been to with over 500 participants. Jen really enjoyed all the talks and posters in the different sessions, there’s lots of cool science going on in the neutron community. Jen had the opportunity to present her work on ZnV2O4, in the first frustrated magnetism session, and received lots of great feedback and had some very interesting discussions on her work. On Wednesday night, the conference dinner took place at the famous Hofbrauhaus where we enjoyed some interesting local Bavarian food, and even some dancing.
After the conference, Jen explored Munich with some of her ILL friends, visiting the Residenz palace and the Olympic park from the 1972 Summer Olympics. Luckily, everyone made it home, even with the strikes in France and Germany!
Thanks to the organisers for such a great conference, it was great to see everyone again!
