A joint research unit between the Institut Laue Langevin, Helmholtz Berlin and Université Grenoble Alpes is being created, focusing on the development and application of combined, correlative neutron and x-ray Imaging in materials and energy research. The new unit, to be called “NI-Matters” (Neutron Imaging for Material and Energy Research), has been inaugured on November 13.
For this occasion, FILL2030 prepared a Spark feature webpage available from the www.ill.eu/neutron-imaging webpage:
The inauguration was lived tweeted from the ILL Twitter account. Below are some extracts:

Helmut Schober adds: “For a long time @ILLGrenoble was not famous for imaging but we waited for the moment we could compete at the highest level and be excellent in neutron imaging – as in anything else we aim to do” pic.twitter.com/BjrL9Vvzyo— Institut Laue-Langevin (@ILLGrenoble) November 13, 2020
