Australian OPAL

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The unique scientific discipline of neutron scattering is set to make a major contribution to Australian industry and science, as Australia’s new nuclear research reactor, OPA L, comes on line later this year. “Neutron scattering allows more accurate characterisation of minerals and metals,” says Klaus-Dieter Liss, of ANSTO’s Bragg Institute. “I use neutron scattering to analyse thermomechanical deformation processes in titanium aluminium sheets.” “We will be using the powder diffractometer to study the systematic structure variations in the iron ore sinter phase SFCA,” says Dr Madsen. “The techniques will complement our X-ray diffraction work. These new neutron scattering instruments will open up a world of opportunities for materials researchers.”
