Tasks and Goals

The development, construction and operation of the neutron scattering facilities at FRG-1 were essential elements of the research programmes ”Research with Photons, Neutrons and Ions” and ”Advanced Engineering Materials”. This integration ensures that research using neutrons at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon is oriented less toward methodology and more toward research goals in the area of materials development tailored to industrial applications.

In addition to their use in the research programme, the radiation capabilities of the research reactor as well as the experimental neutron scattering facilities (which have been expanded over the last few years) were employed in close cooperation with industry, colleges and universities and government agencies.
