"With close of research reactors, landscape is shifting for Europe’s world-leading neutron science community"
Christiane Alba-Simionesco (LLB, Chair of ENSA) and Helmut Schober (LENS Chair and Dir. of ILL)
Three neutron science research reactors in Europe have ceased operations in 2019. The League of advanced European Neutron Sources, LENS, and the European Neutron Scattering Association, ENSA, warn of a “neutron gap” that could impact scientific research across multiple fields in physics, materials science, chemistry, biology, medical science and engineering. Together, LENS and ENSA are working on a new vision to maintain Europe’s leading position in neutron science.
