Other neutron techniques

Listed above are the mainstays of soft matter research in the area of neutron scattering. In a number of cases, however, other diffraction methods or spectroscopies are also utilized. These include diffraction with polarization analysis at DNS (an instrument for diffusion scattering in Garching), which enables coherent and incoherent scattering to be separated out, and time-in-flight spectroscopy, which offers a connection to back scattering (e.g. the instrument TOFTOF in Garching, or IN5 at the ILL).

The BIODIFF instrument enables macromolecular crystallography to take place over a wide temperature range, and is of prime importance in determining the proton positions in protein crystals.
