Tittle: New scientific discoveries with neutrons at the ILL

Speaker: Paul Langan-ILL, France

Over the past few decades, neutron scattering has become a vital tool for studying materials across many scientific fields. The exceptional properties of neutrons provide unique insight into structure, dynamics and function that is complementary to information provided by other techniques based on the use of photons and electrons. This improved understanding of materials underpins future technologies and applications that advance human well-being and drive our economy. The Institute Laue Langevin (ILL) operates Europe’s premier center for neutron science and technology, as a user facility catering to the majority of the European neutron research community. The ILL is collocated on the European Photon and Neutron (EPN) campus in Grenoble along with other leading facilities including the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and the Institute for Structural Biology (IBS). EPN is the research anchor for the GIANT Innovation Campus which brings together over 30,000 people to foster the technological breakthroughs of the future. ILL, EMBL, IBS and ESRF work in partnership to provide access to some of the most advanced experimental platforms for research based on complementary photon, neutron and electron scattering and imaging. To illustrate the extraordinary potential of the ILL to further impact a broad spectrum of scientific fields, some recent examples of new scientific discoveries made by visiting researchers will be described.
