Peering into protein dynamics

Young collaborators at Spallation Neutron Source chemistry lab prep proteins to take neutrons.

Neutrons used to study a key protein in milk

Martha, a cow placidly grazing in a field in The Netherlands, became an important collaborator with researchers who successfully analyzed and characterized the internal protein structure and the composite particles of her ...

Neutron scattering provides window into surface interactions

To better understand the fundamental behavior of molecules at surfaces, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are combining the powers of neutron scattering with chemical analysis.

A new technique for understanding quantum effects in water

It covers over two thirds of our planet, is essential for life on Earth and its chemical formula is one of the few most people can name, but we still have much to learn about the structure of H2O. Now, scientists working ...

Industry and neutron science: Working to make a match

Industrial users are starting to eye the potential of neutron science for solving problems that can't be solved in any other way. At the same time, the Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor neutron science ...

Neutron scattering confirms DNA is as stretchy as nylon

(PhysOrg.com) -- Neutron scientists at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL, France) have measured how fast sound travels along DNA to determine its ‘stiffness’. These findings help to explain how DNA folds, coils and ...
