Welcome to Neutronsources.org

Neutrons are produced at large research infrastructures. Researchers use them to look inside materials. With neutrons one can e.g. look inside a car engine, investigate drug delivery, see how plants uptake water, get insights into the development of superconductors.

This website aims to provide information about neutron facilities and neutron research worldwide. Get to know:

  • Neutron spectroscopy reveals common ‘oxygen sponge’ catalyst soaks up hydrogen, too
    09.11.2017ORNL, USANeutron spectroscopy reveals common ‘oxygen sponge’ catalyst soaks up hydrogen, too

    A workhorse catalyst of vehicle exhaust systems—an “oxygen sponge” that can soak up oxygen from air and store it for later use in oxidation reactions—may also be a “hydrogen sponge.”

  • Resisting the resistance: Neutrons search for clues to combat bacterial threats
    06.11.2017ORNL, USAResisting the resistance: Neutrons search for clues to combat bacterial threats

    Using the MaNDi instrument, scientists at ORNL hope to better understand how bacteria containing enzymes called beta-lactamases resist the beta-lactam class of antibiotics.

     The hour of birth of the German neutron research

    The hour of birth of the German neutron research:
    The Atomic Egg, the first German research reactor, started operating 60 years ago in Garching. Thereby, irreplaceable insights into matter were made possible.

    “Aromatic” molecules for water based electronic devices

    Findings on Perylene structure open new routes for the design of organic electronics.

  • 20.10.2017From: CERIC-ERICA clearer understanding of the role of zinc in glass structure brings the optimization of electronic displays a step forward
    A clearer understanding of the role of zinc in glass structure brings the optimization of electronic displays a step forward

    Evidence has been found that contradicts the basic theory of the exact role of zinc within boromolybdate glasses.
