PNCMI 2020: Save the Date

We are pleased to announce that the 13th biennial PNCMI (Polarized Neutrons for Condensed-Matter Investigations) International Conference will be held from July 27-31, 2020 in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.

The conference will cover the latest condensed-matter investigations using polarized neutrons and state-of-the-art methodologies and techniques of polarized-neutron production and utilization for novel instrumentation and experiments, with emphasis on prospects for new science and instrument concepts as well as combining neutrons with complementary techniques and in-situ secondary measurements.

PNCMI is the most comprehensive conference on the latest scientific research using polarized neutrons and on related instrumentation development.

The topics will include:

  • Multiferroic and chirality
  • Strongly correlated electron systems, including superconductors
  • Frustrated and disordered systems
  • Magnetic nanomaterials
  • Thin films and multilayers
  • Soft matter and biology
  • Imaging
  • Polarized neutron instrumentation
  • Polarized neutron techniques and methods, including nuclear polarization, Larmor techniques
  • Neutron scattering facilities


The conference will include a tour of the polarized-neutron facilities at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. There will also be a Polarized Neutron School for North American applicants held before the main meeting at the NCNR from July 26-27th
