Research with Neutrons
Researchers at the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science and the Peter Grünberg Institute can, with the help of neutrons, investigate the atomic construction and movements of materials with great precision.  Using the “spectrometer for diffuse neutron scattering”, shown here in the picture, it is possible, for example, to detect the magnetic structure of nanomaterials with atomic precision.  Such materials should some day find a use in highly efficient data storage systems in information technology or for quantum computers.
