Let's scatter neutrons

img Comics "Let's scatter neutrons" available  


For the 2018 science festival, LLB did published in French a cartoon illustrating the daily life of staff working on a large instrument of French research. It is now available in English.

We wanted there to give a presentation of the operation of the Orphée reactor and the daily work of researchers and technicians who have been working on instruments for nearly 40 years. Orphée, a medium-power reactor, was the scene of small miracles thanks to which small teams, scientific or technical, achieved major results. He has also trained thousands of students and visiting researchers.

This comic is an initiative of Isabelle Mirebeau, CNRS researcher at LLB. It was realized by Aurelie Bordenave aka Léely, scientific illustrator. It's mainly for students with a bachelor's degree. Like a lot of comics, this one has several levels of reading depending on whether you're just interested in the story it's telling, how it's used to imagine life researchers or as a basis for learning about the research and activities it describes quickly

You may obtain a paper version of the book on request at the LLB either from Alain Menelle or by telephone at the secretariat +33 169085241.

A pdf version is available here.
