The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science JCNS operates instruments at the national and international leading sources FRM II, ILL and SNS under a common scientific objective. JCNS provides external users with access to world class instruments under standardized conditions at the neutron source best suited for their respective experiments.
Neutrons enable us to gaze deep into the heart of matter. As the building blocks of atomic nuclei, neutrons are the ideal probes for investigating crystals, membranes and other systems at the atomic level. In his keynote speech at the 2010 end-of-year ceremony, Prof. Dieter Richter of the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science gave exciting insights into the far-reaching opportunities offered by neutron research to representatives of science, industry and politics.
