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:

    Polymer to capture ammonia pollution realized

    Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute and the Department of Chemistry at University of Copenhagen, have recently designed a porous polymer aiming for the capture of small molecules. Ammonia is a toxic gas widely used as a reagent in industrial processes or resulting from agricultural activities, causing irritation in the throat, eye damage and even death to humans. Being able to capture it with this new method could have huge health benefits. The result is now published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.

    MIT uses neutrons in drive to improve supercapacitors

    Batteries contain chemicals that store and release electrical energy at relatively slow rates compared to capacitors, which are often used in applications requiring power to be delivered rapidly.

    Titanium Atom That Exists in Two Places at Once in Crystal to Blame for Unusual Phenomenon

    The crystalline solid BaTiS3 (barium titanium sulfide) is terrible at conducting heat, and it turns out that a wayward titanium atom that exists in two places at the same time is to blame.
