Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS)

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. The breadth of JCNS is comparable to a facility based around a medium flux research reactor, though it offers the quality of high flux sources. JCNS also provides a frame for the well recognized method and instrument development program of Forschungszentrum Jülich and for its in-house research in the condensed matter and key technology programmes.
