The Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) - the European neutron source - is at the leading edge of neutron science and technology. Located in Grenoble, France, it operates the most intense continuous neutron source in the world. As a service institute, the ILL makes its facilities and expertise available to visiting scientists. Every year, about 2000 researchers from more than 30 countries visit the ILL and about 800 experiments are performed annually. Research focuses primarily on fundamental science in a variety of fields of science.
The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful pulsed neutron source. It’s currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, by a wide European collaboration. ESS will deliver transformative capabilities and extend the technique to new domains of science.
