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 get a wider angle on DNA and RNA to advance 3-D models
    26.06.2019Phys.orgNeutrons 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 …

  • A sparrow has taken flight
    26.06.2019ANSTO, AustraliaA 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.

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

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

    Bad times for truffle counterfeiters: Neutrons detect trace elements in popular edible mushrooms

    Here, the samples are irradiated with cold neutrons. Following the neutron capture, the atomic nuclei of the chemical elements emit characteristic gamma rays.

    Neutrons allow analysis of polymer gels’ unusual attributes

    Neutrons are good probes of materials like polymer gels, largely because of their sensitivity to hydrogen and its isotope, deuterium. Using a unique technique known as contrast matching, researchers replaced some of the hydrogen atoms in the gel with deuterium, which allowed specific structural components to be highlighted by the neutrons.
