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:

  • The atomic dynamics of rare everlasting electric fields
    10.01.2018Duke UniversityThe atomic dynamics of rare everlasting electric fields

    researchers have discovered the atomic mechanisms that give the unusual material yttrium manganite (YMnO3) its rare electromagnetic properties.

  • Neutrons - Exotic particles
    03.01.2018ORNL, USANeutrons - Exotic particles

    Neutron scattering was used for studying magnetic behavior in a material called alpha-ruthenium trichloride. The results may have implications for quantum computing.

  • Fossil energy - Neutrons run deep
    03.01.2018ORNL, USAFossil energy - Neutrons run deep

    ORNL scientists used neutrons to understand how water flows through fractured rock. Their results help improve models for drilling, hydraulic fracturing and underground storage of carbon dioxide
