17. February 2016 10th Anniversary of the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS)

FZ Auditorium, Forschungszentrum Jülich


On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS), ceremonial addresses and a scientific lecture will be held on Wednesday, 17th February, 2016. Friends and associates of the JCNS are cordially invited to attend this event.

Neutron physics has continued to play an important role in Jülich ever since the foundation of the former nuclear research centre 60 years ago. Prior to the shut-down of the Jülich research reactor FRJ-2 (“DIDO”), the JCNS was founded in February 2006 as a distributed neutron research centre without its own neutron source. For the last ten years, JCNS has successfully developed and operated world-class neutron scattering instruments at the best neutron sources worldwide, thus providing access to state-of-the-art experimental facilities in neutron science for both German and international user communities.

JCNS in-house research focuses on correlated electron systems and nanomagnetism as well as soft matter and biophysics. Neutrons for energy is soon to become a third pillar of research. In these areas of expertise, JCNS offers external users expert support on world-class instruments with a specialized sample environment and ancillary laboratory access.
