JCNS-1 and IBI-8 have expertise in the areas of

  • neutron methods, with the operation of neutron small-angle scattering (SANS), neutron reflectometry (NR),
    neutron back scattering (BS), neutron spin echo (NSE), and neutron protein crystallography instruments at the JCNS
    Garching outstation,
  • complementary methods, including advanced X-ray (SAXS, XRD) and light scattering (SLS, DLS, SALS),
    electron (TEM, SEM) and light microscopy (CLSM, STED) as well as spectroscopic, mechanical/rheological and
    thermal characterization methods,
  • sample environments and multi-detection methods, where scattering experiments can be
    performed under shear, tensile force, hydrostatic pressure, magnetic field, electric field, temperature, humidity,
    microfluidic flow, membrane permeation or chemical reaction.
