Structure and Organization
The institute for Neutron Scattering and Soft Matter belongs to the Institute of Biological InformationProcessing (IBI) as well as the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS).
It pursues reserach activities as well as the development and operation of neutron scattering facilities.
Our research activities are mainly related to Soft Matter. As such they are thematically located in the Institute of Biological Information Processing (IBI).
The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) was founded in 2006 by the Institut for Neutron Scattering and the Institute for Scattering Methods (now: JCNS-2/PGI-4) to bundle the construction and operation activities at instruments at the research reactor FRM II in Munich, the spallation source SNS in Oak Ridge (USA) and at the research reactor of the ILL, Grenoble (France).
Our organizational structure consists of several key areas:
(Wischnewski, Pasini, Feygenson, Jaksch, Randriamalala, Violini, Claudio-Weber)

Polymer Structure and Dynamics (Pykhout-Hintzen, Monkenbusch, Zamponi, Appavou, Richter)
Protein Structure and Dynamics (Biehl, Stadler, Schrader; Ameseder, Lorenz)
Ion conduction (Holderer, Ohl)
Soft Matter Structure, Interaction and Assembly
Soft colloids and gels (Dulle, Stellbrink; Jurczyk)
Microemulsions (Frielinghaus, Holderer)
Vesicles and Membranes
Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites (Kruteva; Ehlert; Fruhner, Leffler)
