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:

  • Discovery may lead to safer, more practical natural gas storage
    26.10.2020ORNL, USADiscovery may lead to safer, more practical natural gas storage
    Methane, the primary component of natural gas, is one of the most abundant organic compounds on Earth. Like other fossil fuels, it can be captured, stored, and used for heating buildings, powering natural gas vehicles, cooking ...

    Machine Learning at ILL: First autonomous steps of the neutron spectrometer ThALES

    During the second reactor cycle in 2020, the ThALES team and SCI/CS at ILL in Grenoble, France commissioned and tested a self-learning algorithm developed by the CAMERA team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). For the first time, an algorithm took control over the measurement process, without human intervention.

    New design breaks the polarisation record – again!

    The ILL has now implemented the best neutron polariser in the world – it is more compact and cheaper than others because of its size and able to reach nearly 100% polarisation. It is set to be implemented at a number of facilities in the world to create better particle physics experiments to improve our understanding of the Universe.

    Boron neutron capture therapy is back on the agenda

    Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), a technique that deposits highly targeted radiation into tumour cells, was first investigated as a cancer treatment back in the 1950s. But the field remains small, with only 1700 to 1800 patients treated to date worldwide. This may be about to change.
