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:

    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.”

    BrightnESS² Kicks Off to Bring Together a Sustainable European Neutron Ecosystem

    The BrightnESS2 project holds their kick-off meeting in Rome, Italy. Research organisations and facilities from 11 different countries have jointly set off on a three year journey to strengthen neutron scattering in Europe and create an ecosystem for sustainable science with ESS. They will work towards this goal under the banner of BrightnESS2, a project funded by Horizon 2020.

    Preventing Clumping: How to Keep Proteins Active

    Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich and University College London have now demonstrated for the first time that despite high concentration levels, proteins do not clump together in nanocavities of porous silicon dioxide, but instead behave like a fluid.
