The CNBC's Applied Neutron Diffraction for Industry (ANDI) service provides measurements with neutron beams for proprietary research. Through ANDI, researchers from industry can get the results they need without being expert in the use of neutron beams as probes of materials.
The NRC-CNBC is a world leader in the application of neutron beams to industrial research. In fact, the CNBC actively participated in an international effort that established the current ISO standard for neutron diffraction measurements of residual stress (ISO / TTA3).
The ANDI business framework provides more information about doing business with the CNBC.
Why Neutron Beams?
The high penetration depth and characteristic wavelength of neutrons make them well suited to investigations of industrial materials. In many cases, measurements can be made non-destructively on full-scale industrial components. Because neutron beams are versatile tools that can be applied in thousands of situations, the benefits to Canadian industry have been broad.
Neutron Beams: Tools for Industry
Neutron beams at the CNBC over the past 20 years have increased industrial competitveness, for example, by:
A variety of neutron-based methods can reveal information about industrial materials and processes. For example, neutrons can be used to:
