Science at ILL


The ILL scientific life is organised in ten 'colleges', each of them dealing with a particular field of research and associated neutron methods and instrumentation.

ILL scientists are members of one or more colleges, depending on their personal research interest. Each college is animated by a 'college secretary' elected amongst college members.

College secretaries play a very important role in the scientific life of the ILL. They organise seminars, they take part in the organisation of the proposal evaluation meetings (subcommittee meetings) they are part of the Annual Report production team, and they give input to the ILL Directors and Scientific Coordinator in their lead of the scientific life of the Institute.

Below, you will find the list of the ILL colleges with the link to their web pages and members of the subcommitte pane
