Towards improved neutron scattering data quality

26 March 2014

A typical neutron scattering experiment on low concentration biological samples lasts for some hours, in which time the sample could degrade and consequently inaccurate results may be produced. A team of researchers is working on an in-situ dynamic light scattering set-up to control the sample quality over time so that false data can be discarded. This work will considerably improve the quality of neutron scattering data on delicate biological samples.

The "Integrated Infrastructure Initiative for Neutron Scattering and Muon Spectroscopy" (NMI3) has just published a video in which Dr. Tobias Schrader from the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) and Raimund Heigl from the Technical University of Munich explain their work:
