Encyclopaedia "Exploring matter with neutrons" - now available online

The bilingual (English-French) multimedia encyclopaedia "Exploring matter with neutrons” was developed ten years ago and some of you were among the contributors.
It was published in 2004/2005 in the form of a bilingual CD-ROM (English and French). Despite having a security dongle and a high price tag, around 1000 copies were sold, which is not too bad given the topic.

Very recently, the former developer/editor, iMediaSoft/Nanopolis, gave us permission to publish the encyclopaedia on our web site. So here it is:
 <http://www.ill.eu/about/movies/neutron-encyclopedia/> (v2, 2005)

It contains about 1200 pages, 3000 pictures, more than 1000 animations and 100 videos. 
Most of the content is still valid, even if some parts could do with being corrected, updated or supplemented.
It is true that the image quality is poor by today's standards but this is due to the limited size (700 MB) of CD-ROMs at the time.
