Neutron techniques have already been successfully applied to the following industries:

  • Chemical engineering (soft functional materials such as surfactants, polymers, foams, fibres, textiles, etc.)
  • Microelectronics – from ingots or wafers to on-board devices, nano-materials, quantum computing and advanced data storage.
  • Engineering Materials (a vast array including bulk construction materials, magnetic materials, industrial metallurgy, glasses, etc.)
  • Environment and Energy (hydrogen fuel cells, CO2 sequestration, lithium batteries, biomass processing, etc.)
  • Life Sciences, with many examples in biotechnology and the agro food industry

The SINE2020 initiative offers the opportunity to use Europe’s leading neutron facilities for your company’s R&D needs. Applications can now be made for free feasibility studies, encompassing the following services:

  • Preliminary consultations via SINE2020 Liaison Officers with scientific experts in your field.
  • Support in defining, preparing and performing experiments at the research facilities.
  • Assistance with data analysis and result interpretation.

Even though the deadline is June 30th, applications are already being accepted and will be reviewed continuously. The decision on the feasibility and the appropriate facility to conduct measurements will be announced no later than one month after receiving your request. Do not hesitate to for further information!
