Billinge Named Fellow of the Neutron Scattering Society of America

Prof. Simon Billinge has been named a fellow of the Neutron Scattering Society of America in recognition of his “seminal contributions to the field of local structure and nanostructure studies using atomic pair distribution function methods and impact on the field of neutron diffraction.” This technique uses the information from neutrons scattered from materials to discern the atomic arrangements in nanoparticles, enabling scientists to better understand the link between structure and function. This information paves the way toward rational design of new materials with improved properties for applications from medicine to new energy-saving technologies.
