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:

  • User research at BER II: Lupin roots observed in the act of catching water from soil – so far too quick for 3D views
    25.07.2017HZB, GermanyUser research at BER II: Lupin roots observed in the act of catching water from soil – so far too quick for 3D views

    Just how lupines draw water approaching their roots in soil has now for the first time been observed in three dimensions by a University of Potsdam team at the HZB-BER II neutron source in Berlin.

  • Neutrons point the way to optimised crash-tolerant automotives
    20.07.2017ILL, FranceNeutrons point the way to optimised crash-tolerant automotives

    The correlation between spot welding and residual stress in boron steel was experimentally determined for the first time with neutron diffraction experiments conducted at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL).

  • First observation: new type of entanglement in a 2D quantum material
    17.07.2017MLZ, GermanyFirst observation: new type of entanglement in a 2D quantum material

    Scientists from EPFL and PSI have shown experimentally, for the first time, a quantum phase transition in strontium copper borate.

    Mystery of an enigmatic impression in the braincase solved

    Recently, Michael Laaß could clarify the possible function of an enigmatic impression in the braincase of the forerunners of mammals by means of neutron tomography at the instrument ANTARES of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum.
