The 35th Inside NMI3 e-newsletter brings with it exciting news. The e-learning platform e-neutrons.org is now online. Now everyone can learn neutron scattering for free, and scientists can even simulate experiments before they travel to the facilities. As we said previously, you will still hear from us for a while, but we're starting to direct our readers to Neutronsources.org and SINE2020.eu.
The news you can find in this issue are the following:
- Neutron scattering e-learning platform is now online
- VIDEO: New stopped-flow observation head for simpler and cheaper SANS experiments
- School dates: JCNS Lab School and FullProf
- Explaining neutron scattering to children in their mother tongue
- Mark Johnson to be next ILL UK Associate Director and Head of Science
- CFP on French neutron scattering instruments: deadline April 1st
- Communicating collaboration – comms officers met in Lund
- Neutrons for Industry: SINE2020 aims and open call
We hope you enjoy your reading!

Neutron scattering e-learning platform is now online
Neutron scattering textbook, exercises, and simulations of experiments are now available online and for free at e-neutrons.org.
NEW VIDEO: New stopped-flow observation head for simpler and cheaper SANS experiments
A team of scientists and technicians designed a more efficient stopped-flow observation head that can make SANS experiments easier and more efficient to conduct. Watch our new video to know all about it!
