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:

  • Protecting priceless works of art with neutrons
    24.03.2020ILL, FranceProtecting priceless works of art with neutrons
    Artwork does not last forever. This is particularly true for paintings, which are appreciated for their visual appearance, but inevitably deteriorate through physical processes such as the deposition of air-borne dust and soot, ...

    Preserved and fresh: Neutrons show the details of the drying process during freeze drying

    Freeze drying has provided us with tasty dried fruits in muesli, long-life yoghurt cultures and many other important products. For the first time, using neutron beams from the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) research neutron source, a team of scientists has now been able to show us the drying process in detail. The process engineering has thus gained a method of testing theoretical models in practice.

    EU promotes cooperation with Russian neutron research

    The Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Research Neutron Source receives around 350,000 euros in funding from the EU to continue its cooperation with large-scale Russian research institutions. The project CREMLINplus was officially launched in Hamburg at the end of February.

    Synthetic proteins rival their  natural counterparts in proton transport

    Artificial membranes have been used for small- and large-scale industrial processes since the middle of the twentieth century, yet their inefficiency can make some processes relatively slow and expensive. Scientists have long sought to develop synthetic membranes that could match the selectivity and high-speed transport offered by their natural counterparts.
