A team of researchers from the University of South Carolina is using neutrons to develop more durable and efficient materials called waste forms for safely storing hazardous substances.
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.

ORNL scientists used neutrons to understand how water flows through fractured rock. Their results help improve models for drilling, hydraulic fracturing and underground storage of carbon dioxide
An international team of physicists has developed a breakthrough method to calculate the exact point at which atomic nuclei become unstable.
Nicholas Leister and his supervisor Dr. Xiaosong Li examined different meteorites in their elemental composition after the samples had previously been irradiated at the FRMII.
