NMI3 Joint Research Activities

Improving neutron scattering data quality: a multi-angle light scattering setup

During an experiment the sample might degrade and produce questionable results. In our new video, researchers explain their work on a set up to control the sample quality along time so that false data can be discarded. This work will improve the data quality.
