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 investigate tomatoes for insights into interplant chatter
    20.05.2019Phys.orgNeutrons investigate tomatoes for insights into interplant chatter

    Exactly how that process works at the microscopic level is not well understood.

    Answering this question could have a big impact on both plant ecology and agriculture, which is why professors Kathryn and Jonathan Morris from …

  • Simulations identify importance of lattice distortions in ion-conducting fuel cell materials
    19.05.2019Phys.orgSimulations identify importance of lattice distortions in ion-conducting fuel cell materials

    “During this process of understanding what limits proton conduction in existing materials, we hope to also discover some new physics,” Ganesh said. “It’s all related to underlying atomistic mechanisms.”

    To validate the …

  • Scientists discover hydration is key to improving catalyst performance for industrial use
    17.05.2019Phys.orgScientists discover hydration is key to improving catalyst performance for industrial use

    Scientists have used neutron scattering to identify the secret to a metal-organic framework’s (MOF) ability to efficiently convert chemicals, through a process called catalysis, into new substances. By probing a material known as …

    A life for neutron research: In mourning of Erich Steichele

    He developed the world’s first neutron time-of-flight diffractometer with a 150-meter-long neutron guide at the Atomic Egg in Garching and planned the instruments at the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz. Now Erich Steichele has died at the age of 80 near Bad Wörishofen.

    Towards a new era for backscattering spectroscopy

    Today, in a collaboration financed by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Research, the ILL and the Friedrich-Alexander University (FAU) Erlangen-Nürnberg have taken a major stride towards the construction of a GaAs-based backscattering spectrometer. The result is a drop in energy resolution to several tens of nano-eV, nearly an order of magnitude better than could ever be attained with silicon crystals.

  • 10.05.2019From: ISIS, UKWatching hydrogen flip its spin
    Watching hydrogen flip its spin

    A conversion that happens inside a hydrogen molecule has been studied with an unprecedented level of detail, giving an insight into how this conversion can be maximised, with implications for neutron sources, engineering and industry.
