Latest news :

  • If you would like to do small angle scattering think to the possibility of using TPA to extend your Q range towards low Q
  • PA20, the new SANS machine did receive its first neutrons recently and everything works fine. It enters in the commissioning phase and should be open to users for the fall call
  • LLB accepts proposals in French but encourages users to submit it in English

LLB is part of the NMI3 Access Programme . Users from eligible countries might be supported by reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs.
