Kim Lefmann receives advisory post for ESS

Kim Lefmann, who researches the magnetic and superconducting properties of materials at the Nano Science Center at the Niels Bohr Institute, is part of the new scientific advisory group for the board of the research facility ESS, to be located in the Øresund Region. 

ESS, European Spallation Source, is a European accelerator project, which will be the world’s most powerful neutron source for the research of materials in physics, biology, health, geosciences and engineering. The research facility will be located in Lund and a data center will also be established at the North Campus in Copenhagen.

The scientific advisory group for the board of ESS has 26 members and Kim Lefmann is part of the instrument group. Kim Lefmann and his group are already working on a system that simulates how the neutron instruments work.

Associate professor Lise Arleth from the Faculty of Life Sciences is part of the scientific utilisation group. So Denmark is very well represented.
