Neutrons & Energy

New materials for sustainable energy

Growing energy demands and serious environmental concerns mean that new and more efficient forms of energy generation and conservation are required – often based on advanced materials with carefully tailored  complex structures.

Neutrons offer the perfect tool to study them.

A versatile and unique portfolio of research solutions

  • crystal structures from powders and mixed phases,
  • following-up of chemical reactions and phase changes, catalysis process,
  • investigation of H2 storage materials, Li-ion batteries,
  • imaging water in fuel cell,
  • mechanical stress in industrial components, composites, metals, ceramics,
  • non-destructive trace element analysis.

How neutrons make the difference?
