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:

  • Closely spaced hydrogen atoms could facilitate superconductivity
    06.02.2020ORNL, USAClosely spaced hydrogen atoms could facilitate superconductivity
    An international team of researchers has discovered the hydrogen atoms in a metal hydride material are much more tightly spaced than had been predicted for decades—a feature that could possibly facilitate superconductivity at ...
  •  Neutrons “break the ice” for exploring fundamental physics in frozen water
    15.01.2020ORNL, USA Neutrons “break the ice” for exploring fundamental physics in frozen water
    The ice we blend into our frozen drinks is a complicated compound, riddled with strange molecular inconsistencies scientists still struggle to understand. Exploring the physics behind the odd microstructure of water-ice may help ...
