People

Chadwick

Neutron scattering was made possible thanks to the work of numerous scientists who invested their time in developing the techniques and science so that these could reach the level we know today.

In this section you can find links to biographical notes of neutron scientists. The journal Neutron News kindly offers free access to the obituaries.
