Lollipops and Neutrons: What do they have in Common?
Dr Silvia Capelli, Science and Engineering Facilities Council
Crystals can be found anywhere around us: from sugar and salt on our dining tables, to snowflakes and gemstones in nature, up in roofs in solar panels or in electrical cars' batteries. Determining the relative arrangement of atoms in crystalline materials is one of the key points in understanding their properties and possible applications but also in designing new materials. Neutron crystallography is one of the core techniques in this context.
