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:

  • Cladding tubes and their properties
    25.03.2019Paul Scherrer InstitutCladding tubes and their properties

    One of the broad research areas at PSI covers the topic of energy. Part of that, in turn, is the research for nuclear energy and safety. And one of the research groups based here is engaged with nuclear fuels. Johannes Bertsch is …

  •  Improved Membranes for Platinum-free Fuel Cells
    20.03.2019Forschungszentrum Jülich, JCNS, Germany Improved Membranes for Platinum-free Fuel Cells

    Scientists from Jülich together with colleagues from Japan have discovered how fuel cell membranes can be improved without the use of rare and expensive precious metals such as platinum. The anion-exchange membranes studied are …

  • Scientists study method for researching magnetic materials
    12.03.2019MLZ, GermanyScientists study method for researching magnetic materials

    Physicists from the University of Luxembourg, the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) and a team of research partners have demonstrated for the first time in a comprehensive study how different magnetic materials can be examined …

    Batteries with silicon anodes: Neutron experiments show how surface structures reduce the capacity

    An HZB team with neutron experiments at the BER II in Berlin and at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble has clarified what happens on the surface of the silicon anode during charging and which processes reduce the capacitance.

    Scientists discover new quantum spin liquid

    An international research team led by the University of Liverpool and McMaster University has made a significant breakthrough in the search for new states of matter.

    In a study published in the journal Nature Physics, researchers show that the perovskite-related metal oxide, TbInO3, exhibits a quantum spin liquid state, a long-sought-after and unusual state of matter.

    Neutrons unlock the secrets of limoncello

    If you’re looking for a liquid to study with neutron scattering, lemon liqueur probably isn’t your first thought. But, for Dr. Leonardo Chiappisi, a researcher at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL, France) and the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin), it was an obvious choice. “I’m originally from Sicily,” he jokes, “and limoncello is the best thing to help liven up a dinner.”
