Development of High Intensity Neutron Source at the European Spallation Source

Project description

Things are getting intense at Europe's newest neutron source facility

Neutrons are extremely useful probes of materials, their properties and behaviours. These neutral particles are scattered from the nuclei of atoms and are far more penetrating than ion beams or X-rays. They also have a nuclear spin that makes them sensitive to studies of magnetism. In addition, their mass can transfer energy and momentum, making them useful for studying vibrations representative of chemical bonds and magnetic interactions. Spallation sources are the most intense accelerator-based neutron sources and currently the brightest neutron sources in the world. There are only 10 of them globally. The EU-funded HighNESS project is supporting an upgrade of the European Spallation Source being constructed in Sweden. It’s unprecedented brilliance, flux and spectral range will make it the most versatile neutron source in the world, and further develop its scientific capabilities.
