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 probe oxygen-generating enzyme for a greener approach to clean water
    13.11.2017ORNL, USANeutrons probe oxygen-generating enzyme for a greener approach to clean water

    A new study sheds light on a unique enzyme that could provide an eco-friendly treatment for chlorite-contaminated water supplies and improve water quality worldwide.

  • “Perfectly frustrated” metal provides possible path to superconductivity, other new quantum states
    08.11.2017Ames Laboratory, USA“Perfectly frustrated” metal provides possible path to superconductivity, other new quantum states

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory has discovered and described the existence of a unique disordered electron spin state in a metal that may provide a unique pathway to finding and studying frustrated magnets.

  • Neutron spectroscopy reveals common ‘oxygen sponge’ catalyst soaks up hydrogen, too
    09.11.2017ORNL, USANeutron spectroscopy reveals common ‘oxygen sponge’ catalyst soaks up hydrogen, too

    A workhorse catalyst of vehicle exhaust systems—an “oxygen sponge” that can soak up oxygen from air and store it for later use in oxidation reactions—may also be a “hydrogen sponge.”

    Resisting the resistance: Neutrons search for clues to combat bacterial threats

    Using the MaNDi instrument, scientists at ORNL hope to better understand how bacteria containing enzymes called beta-lactamases resist the beta-lactam class of antibiotics.

  • 03.11.2017From: MLZ, Germany The hour of birth of the German neutron research
     The hour of birth of the German neutron research

    The hour of birth of the German neutron research:
    The Atomic Egg, the first German research reactor, started operating 60 years ago in Garching. Thereby, irreplaceable insights into matter were made possible.
