Foreword for the Special Issue on Advanced Neutron Scattering Instrumentation



D.N. Argyriou, Andrew J. Allen


Neutron scattering facilities are called to address an ever-expanding mission in the investigation, development and use of a broad range of materials: from investigating cultural heritage artifacts to advanced bio-materials, from studies of phase transitions and quantum matter to advanced engineering composites for aircraft. This breadth of applications, together with the complex problems they present for making scientific and technical progress, are key drivers for new advanced neutron sources and novel instrumentation that covers an enormously broad scale in both time and space.
