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 octupoles form a new quantum ice
    21.05.2020ILL, FranceMagnetic octupoles form a new quantum ice
    Spin ice is a recently discovered state of matter, made of a macroscopic landscape of degenerate magnetic configurations due to the conjunction of strong Ising moments, frustrated network connectivity and ferromagnetic ...
  • Scientists produce a magnetic nanocrystal with many potential applications
    05.05.2020Phys.orgScientists produce a magnetic nanocrystal with many potential applications
    Spinels are oxides with chemical formulas of the type AB2O4, where A is a divalent metal cation (positive ion), B is a trivalent metal cation, and O is oxygen. Spinels are valued for their beauty, which derives from the ...
  • New Handle for Controlling Electromagnetic Properties Could Enable Spintronic Computing
    24.04.2020ORNL, USANew Handle for Controlling Electromagnetic Properties Could Enable Spintronic Computing
    The magnetic transition of troilite causes instabilities in the “space metal’s” structure that transforms it from a conductor to an insulator.

    Scientists tap into AI to put a new spin on neutron experiments

    Scientists seek to use quantum materials – those that have correlated order at the subatomic level – for electronic devices, quantum computers, and superconductors. Quantum materials owe many of their properties to the physics that is occurring on the smallest scales, physics that is fully quantum mechanical.

    Multi-stage deformation process in high-entropy alloys at ultra-low temperatures revealed

    An international research team led by scientists from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has recently discovered that high-entropy alloys (HEAs) exhibit exceptional mechanical properties at ultra-low temperatures due to the coexistence of multiple deformation mechanisms. Their discovery may hold the key to designing new structural materials for applications at low temperatures.
