The BNC management wish the entire staff, users and fans a quiet Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2022. Following an almost two-year period of technical difficulties with the cold neutron source, the research reactor of the Budapest Neutron Centre has performed flawlessly during the automn cycles. Following the winter shutdown the reactor operation is scheduled to restart on 17 January, 2022. The approved reactor schedule for 2022 is available at www.bnc.hu/schedule.

Prof. emer. Jose Teixeira (CNRS, LLB Saclay), on his visit to Wigner RCP (host: prof. L. Pusztai), gave a 2-hour hybrid mode tutorial entitled: “Introduction to neutron scattering by disordered matter”. Fundamental concepts of neutron scattering, as applied for studying disordered materials, were introduced. Although the focus of the tutorial was placed on investigating nanoscale structure by SANS, time was devoted to related topics, such as revealing atomic/molecular level structure and dynamics. Instrumentational aspects were also covered.

An iconic artefact of the Hungarian National Museum was x-ray analyzed today in BNC. The Mors figure, an allegorical depiction of Death, is believed to have been made in a workshop in Augsburg, Germany, in the late 16th century. The purpose of the X-ray examination was to obtain information about the preparation technique and the internal structure of the sculpture. See more...
