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:

  • Programming neutrons
    30.10.2018MLZ, GermanyProgramming neutrons

    Instead of beach and sun, they preferred working with mathematical functions for neutron scattering data. Two pupils changed Catalonia for Bavaria for four weeks and performed a practical with Dr. Sebastian Busch at the MLZ in …

  • Neutrons explain higher efficiency of solar cells with additives
    15.11.2018MLZ, GermanyNeutrons explain higher efficiency of solar cells with additives

    Scientists at the Chair of Functional Materials at Physics Department of TUM have been researching organic photovoltaic cells since several years.

  • Big jobs: Safety, planning key to increasing production performance at Spallation Neutron Source
    14.11.2018Phys.orgBig jobs: Safety, planning key to increasing production performance at Spallation Neutron Source

    In December 2017, the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) entered into an extended 5 month scheduled outage to perform a number of high-priority jobs needed …

    Feeling the need for speed, neutrons study fluid flow for hypersonic flight

    Searching for solutions to supersonic fluid flow behavior, researchers from the University of Tennessee–Knoxville, and the US Air Force are using neutron radiography at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The team says a better understanding of spray dynamics will lead to improved fuel injector designs for the aeronautic and automotive industries as well as other spray-related applications used in agriculture, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing.

    Cold neutrons used in hot pursuit of better thermoelectrics

    Engineers from Duke University are using cold (lower- energy) neutron scattering techniques at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to study the vibrational motions of atoms, called “phonons,” which is how heat propagates through thermoelectric materials.

    Neutrons help to analyse outer surface interactions on E. coli

    Researchers have been using neutrons to explore the complex outer surfaces of the bacterium Escherichia Coli (E.coli), and they have revealed in the process, with great precision and detail, how such bacteria interact with their surroundings.
