With sponsorship from Tesla Motors, one ‘Gold medal’ Canadian scientist is using neutron beams in the quest to reduce the cost of energy storage technologies.
Neutrons are produced at large research infrastructures. Researchers use them to look inside materials. With neutrons one can e.g. look inside a car engine, investigate drug delivery, see how plants uptake water, get insights into the development of superconductors.

Neutron reflectivity, alongside other imaging methods, has been used to study the properties of ultrathin Pt/Co/Pt films.
Neutrons assist the exploration of a completely new set of topological insulating materials.
Neutrons where used to test the Phonon-Liquid Electron-Crystal (PLEC) approach as a step towards developing better thermoelectric materials.
The instrument BioDiff at the MLZ has located with highest accuracy hydrogen atoms of various inhibitors when binding to the enzyme trypsin.
