Accelerator-driven, low-energy compact neutron sources are considered the next generation of neutron source for a wide range of applications. On 12 December 2022, researchers from the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) at Forschungszentrum Jülich achieved a significant breakthrough, delivering first neutrons with a powerful new target/moderator technology.
To meet the challenge of designing new materials that are competitively functional and highly recyclable, the potential of more than 50 analytical research infrastructures of the European ARIE network will be harnessed through a new project, ReMade@ARI. Several LENS members will participating in the project, which launches on 1 September 2022 after receiving 13.8 million euros funding under the European Union’s (EU) Horizon Europe programme.
Neutron Science in Europe, published as a joint initiative of the BrightnESS2 project and LENS Initiative, presents the current landscape for neutrons in Europe and addresses the challenges and opportunities for European neutron science to remain a key contributor in addressing current and future societal challenges.
