Mirco Grosse

Candidate to represent:SINQ user community
Field of studies/profession:Metal/Material sciences
Current affiliation:Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Institute for Applied Materials
Previous affiliations:   
  • FZ Karlsruhe / KIT (since 2005)
  • Paul Scherrer Institut (1999 – 2005)
  • Research Centre Rossendorf (1990 – 1999)
Research interests:
  • Hydrogen in metals
  • Reaction kinetics
  • Precipitates
Fields of expertise:
  • Neutron Imaging (Hydrogen in zirconium alloys)
  • Small Angle Neutron Scattering (irradiation-induced precipitates in steels)
  • Neutron Diffraction (residual stress/strain measurements, phase concentrations in steels)
PSI facilities used so far:SINQ: POLDI, ICON, NEUTRA, BOA, SANS-I, DMC
Motivation statement:If I was elected I would support the communication between users and beamline scientists. Because I was at both sides in the past, as beamline scientist as well as user, I am particularly suitable for this topic. One of my focuses would be the care for highly demanded methods like imaging, SANS and diffraction. Another goal would be to open all neutron scattering methods to a wider field of potential users.
