BNC - call for proposals

The next deadline for receipt of proposals is 1 April 2018! Don’t miss!

The Budapest Neutron Centre invites you to submit applications for beam time at the Budapest Research Reactor.
BNC with 14 neutron instruments are free to use for academic and industry researchers, provided results from experiments at BNC are published in the public domain.
New users are always welcome at BNC and we are constantly encouraging new areas of research that can flourish.
Important note: applicants should discuss their proposal with the appropriate Instrument Scientist before submitting. BNC scientists and the User Office can help you with your proposal, and all BNC users receive a high level of support during experiments.

You can download our proposal form or you can submit using our on-line system!



We are pleased to invite you to attend the 12nd Central European Training School on Neutron Techniques (CETS2018) to be hosted by Budapest Neutron Centre, at KFKI Campus, Budapest on the 6-11 May 2018. 

CETS gives insight into neutron research methods and their application in studying the structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Theoretical training and practical work together with a poster section gives good opportunity for the participants to connect their own research with neutrons. PhD students, students and newcomers in this field are welcome.

Application deadline: 15 March 2018
