18.03.2009 Use of in situ neutron diffraction to monitor high-temperature, solid/H2-gas reactions

For the first time, the chemistry of a perovskite-like material, Pr2Sr2CrNiO8, under flowing H2gas, has been monitored at temperatures up to 700 °C, in situ, by neutron powder diffraction at D20. With this it becomes possible to...[more]

A new book has just been published in the Series Neutron Scattering Applications and Techniques (Springer Ed.). With Liyuan Liang and Romano Rinaldi, Helmut SCHOBER, Head of the ILL Time-of-Flight and High Resolution...[more]

15.12.2008 The top cover of the Physical Review Letter for Phil Bentley and R. Cywinski

An article by P. M. Bentley (ILL) and Robert Cywinski (School of Applied Sciences, Huddersfield, UK) was recently chosen for the top cover of the Physical Review Letter. The work was conducted on D11 at the ILL. Magnetic...[more]

10.12.2008 FIGARO's first reflection using a silicon crystal

On 10th December, FIGARO has been born as a reflectometer! Although there is a lot of hard work still to come before running experiments, this is an essential milestone in the building of the instrument. [more]
