Neutron beam reactors

Published on 31 July 2017

Neutrons, as compared to X-rays, electron beams or light … display a particular property: being without electrical charge, they deeply penetrate most materials.

This means that large samples of semi-finished products or even components can undergo neutronic testing. No prior surface treatment is required and tests are non-destructive.

The results are applied in varied fields such as:

Mobility of organic molecules in soils
Optimisation of magnetic properties of multilayer materials
Setting of bioactive regeneration for bone growth

Study of carbon nanotubes properties
Study of magnetic correlations in superconductors
Study of surfactants
Crystallography and under constraint modifications / Measurement of residual constraints
Setting of new polymers
General support to nanotechnologies
