X-ray Simulation: General Isotropic scattering model




Greater Copenhagen area

Develop a general scattering model which connects Molecular Dynamics (MD) calculations with X-ray tracing simulations for performing virtual experiments.

The aim of the project is to, based on the already existing capability for neutron scattering simulation, enable the feature of connecting MD calculations of isotropic scatterers, e.g. liquids, with detailed models of X-ray scattering beamlines at large scale facilities around the world. In this project you will be expected to investigate the differences between isotropic X-ray and neutron scattering, and implement them within an existing software framework McXtrace (developed at DTU Fysik) and compare the so obtained simulations with existing experimental data taken at a synchrotron radiation facility.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
