Neutron Data Analysis and Visualization

As the data sets generated by the increasingly powerful neutron scattering instruments at HFIR and SNS grow ever more massive, the facilities' users require significant advances in data reduction and analysis tools. Designing and developing the software and hardware to accomplish this task is a research area all its own.

SEQUOIA Measures Magnetic Excitations Revealing Exotic Physics in One Dimension

Neutron scattering is a powerful tool for studying the strength of the magnetic interactions between a material’s magnetic ions. A collaboration from Canada, Taiwan, and the United States used time-of-flight neutron scattering at the Spallation Neutron Source instrument SEQUOIA to...

Neutron Imaging Explored as Complementary Technique for Improving Cancer Detection

ORNL and University of Tennessee collaboration now analyzing first results from neutron radiographs of cancerous tissue samples

Today’s range of techniques for detection of breast and other cancers include mammography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),...

Beam Line 13 Fuels Discovery Fever for Fundamental Physicists

Kucuker Dogan (left) and Matthew Musgrave prepare a helium-3 cooling cell that is used to measure the angle at which the neutron beam strikes the liquid hydrogen sample.

The simplest, most sensible “ Big Bang” universe, theoretical physicists believe, would be one in which equal...
