Modular Neutron Detector SoNDe on Video
Neutrons are unique probes that make it possible to answer questions from a diverse spectrum of scientific areas, ranging from the origin of the universe, to chemical and biological processes, right through to challenges in material and engineering sciences. However, as neutrons are invisible to the naked eye and optical cameras, it is only possible to observe them using advanced technology.

Neutron Scattering (JCNS-1)

We investigate structure and dynamics of soft matter using neutrons, develop neutron scattering instruments and make them available to external researchers in the JCNS. More: Neutron Scattering (JCNS-1) …


Scattering Methods (JCNS-2)

We develop and use scattering techniques to understand the structural and magnetic order, fluctuations and excitations in magnetic systems and in highly correlated electron systems at the atomic level. More: Scattering Methods (JCNS-2) …
