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:

  • Magnetic nanoparticles change their magnetic structure in a magnetic field
    03.08.2020ILL, FranceMagnetic nanoparticles change their magnetic structure in a magnetic field
    When ultrafine magnetic particles are exposed to an external magnetic field, their magnetic core grows in a previously unexpected way. This was observed by a team of scientists from the University of Cologne (UoC), ...
  • Love-hate relationship of solvent and water leads to better biomass breakup
    31.07.2020ORNL, USALove-hate relationship of solvent and water leads to better biomass breakup
    Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory used neutron scattering and supercomputing to better understand how an organic solvent and water work together to break down plant biomass, creating a ...
  • Relaxation cure for aluminum
    18.07.2020MLZ, GermanyRelaxation cure for aluminum
    Aluminum blanks cannot be produced without residual stress. This means that the material warps during subsequent machining, which leads to inaccuracies. This is particularly problematic in delicate applications, such as aircraft ...

    Ultra-fast diffusion of hydrogen in a novel mesoporous N-doped carbon

    The synthesis of stable and cost-effective new materials is paramount for the development of advanced technologies. At the same time, new and exciting insights can be made about material properties to better inform their development in the future. In a new study published in Carbon, researchers from the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) together with colleagues from Universidad de Antioquia, Colombia, and research centres around Europe used instruments at the ILL to test a new carbon-based material, named D-96-7, and found exciting diffusion capabilities that may have applications in the world of sustainable energy provision.

    Tender announced to provide fuel for Russia’s PIK reactor

    Russia’s BP Konstantinova Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics has announced a tender for the development of a core design for the PIK research reactor in Gatchina. The aim of the project is to provide nuclear fuel for the PIK research reactor.

    Hydrogen – but efficiently

    Hydrogen as an energy carrier will play an important role in the energy turnaround. But to produce it from water in a CO2-neutral way by electrolysis, it needs a lot of electricity. Neutrons help to study materials that can reduce the electricity consumption in this reaction.
