  • Predicting the Reliability of Turbine Runners in Hydro Power Plants
    06.05.2016CNBC, CanadaPredicting the Reliability of Turbine Runners in Hydro Power Plants

    Hydro-Québec is using stress data from the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre (CNBC) to improve electricity generation from hydroelectric dams.

  • Polymer chain behavior in polymer nanocomposites with attractive interactions
    03.05.2016LLB, FrancePolymer chain behavior in polymer nanocomposites with attractive interactions

    Chain behavior has been determined in polymer nanocomposites comprised of well-dispersed 12nm diameter silica nanoparticles in poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) matrices by Small-Angle Neutron Scattering measurements under the …

  • Novel catalyst achieves record-high yields of biofuel
    03.05.2016ISIS, UKNovel catalyst achieves record-high yields of biofuel

    Scientists have designed a novel catalyst that overcomes the challenge of breaking down complex plant components to produce some of the highest yields of biofuel. The results bring us one step closer to lessening our dependence …

    HERACLES: new project on our resources page

    Addressing one of the last remaining concerns in the civil nuclear fuel cycle. Europe’s High Performance Research Reactors have teamed up in a common initiative, “HERACLES”, to support the world-wide non-proliferation efforts by minimizing their usage of HEU material.

  • 02.05.2016From: MLZ, Germany Neutrons save cultural heritage from the Iron Age
     Neutrons save cultural heritage from the Iron Age

    Scientists have examined a method to preserve artifacts more closely by Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis to find the optimal conditions for preservation.

  • 30.04.2016From: MLZ, GermanyFuel Cells: Polymers, platinum and a poster prize
    Fuel Cells: Polymers, platinum and a poster prize

    Results show that one can examine details of the operation of fuel cells with neutron scattering and thus promote the optimisation of the individual components of the fuel cell for a longer life and better efficiency.
