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 for Organic Solar Energy Technologies
    10.07.2019ISIS, UKNeutrons for Organic Solar Energy Technologies

    Scientists from The University of Sheffield are studying the layered structure of highly efficient organic thin films for cheaper, more environmentally friendly, solar energy technologies.

  • Neutron Power: Finding useful oxygen atoms and ions
    10.07.2019ISIS, UKNeutron Power: Finding useful oxygen atoms and ions

    The unique properties of neutrons have enabled the study of potential fuel cell materials to understand the transport of oxygen within them and the contribution of ionic charge carriers to the total electrical conductivity.

  • Alex Johs: Using neutrons for biological and environmental science
    10.07.2019ORNL, USAAlex Johs: Using neutrons for biological and environmental science

    It was ORNL’s world-class neutron sources that drew Johs to the laboratory. He had experienced how powerful a tool neutrons could be while working on his doctorate in biophysics at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, where he …

    Neutrons get a wider angle on DNA and RNA to advance 3-D models

    By adding the new information collected via solution neutron scattering to other data from solution X-ray scattering and NMR spectroscopy, the NIST-Maryland group hopes to get a more comprehensive picture of DNA and RNA structures, as well as to expand avenues for defining molecular structures with neutron-based techniques.

    A sparrow has taken flight

    ANSTO’s significant neutron scattering capabilities have been extended to fifteen advanced scientific instruments with the official opening of the Spatz neutron reflectometer.

  • 19.06.2019From: ILL, FranceA single-step approach for complex coatings
    A single-step approach for complex coatings

    Neutron experiments prove that multi-layered functional coatings can be prepared with a simple, single step procedure.
