Given the current shortage of neutrons in Europe, the Budapest Neutron Centre is offering to accommodate experiments that have been allocated beam time as part of any LENS facility user program, but have not yet been scheduled for any reason, if – at least part of – the experiments are technically feasible to accomplish at BNC.
More than 50 years ago, researchers discovered a pronounced phase transition in strontium iron oxide at room temperature. However, what exactly happens in this process at the atomic level has been unclear ever since. Using high-resolution neutron measurements, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Center (MLZ) has now been able to solve this old mystery.
Swedish company Sandvik Coromant produces the latest cutting tools and inserts using pressed powder materials, like cemented carbides, which are sintered to make them into a very hard material.
Airbus, a global leader in the aerospace sector, accessed STFC facilities and expertise to assure weld quality in welded aluminium alloys used in aircraft components, and to develop manufacturing techniques.
The ESFRI Roadmap for Research Infrastructures in Europe has influenced European and national strategies, policies and funding since the first edition was launched in 2006. The latest roadmap, published on 7 December 2021, recognises the important role of the LENS Initiative in bringing together European analytical facilities to “identify synergies and opportunities for closer collaboration” and “improve the cooperation of various communities and enhance user facilities”.
Researchers combine neutron diffraction experiments and simulations to study NaCl solutions under extreme conditions.
An international research team at the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a new imaging technology. In the future, this technology could not only improve the resolution of neutron measurements by many times, but could also reduce the radiation dose for medical x-ray imaging.
Microstructural details obtained from neutron diffraction experiments indicate that a 17th century kabuto protected its wearer from firearms in a manner similar to a car crumple zone.
