We are a research group at the Technical University of Denmark. We study the structure of matter with neutrons and X-rays.

Someone likes it cold - iced detector at the ISIS neutron source

Time-of-flight powder diffraction as seen by the 36 detectors of the SENJU beamline. Simulation done using McStas

1 near field detector, 36 far field detectors and one experiment to rule them all - Second week of measurements at J-PARC for NEXMAPpers working in 3D material science

Did you know that? DTU is at a one hour drive from Lund, Sweden, a booming scientific hub with two giant microscopes under construction.

Try this at home! With McXtrace and McStas you don’t need a research center to carry on an X-ray or neutron experiment

Here’s a nice visual: The ratio of a soccerball to the earth is the same as the ratio of a carbon nano-particle called a Buckminster Fullerene, or Bucky Ball to that soccerball.
An entire nano-world could live on the old ball in your back yard.

Neutron imaging helps understanding the ultimate structure of things. For example, how does a moka work? Video by A. Kaestner, beamline responsible at the Paul Scherren Institute in Switzerland.

X-ray Thursday: know thy ribosome
In 2009 Ada Yonath won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her work on the structure of ribosome. Ribosomes are complex structures located in all living cells (pic via Asian Science Magazine)
