Assets And Services

We offer access to world-leading expertise and facilities for analyzing stress and texture in engineering materials using neutron diffraction.

Other innovation or manufacturing support, including contract manufacturing services

For two years the operations of the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre have been transferred to Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL). Users of the CNBC study many kinds of materials that underlie advances in scientific, industrial and medical fields, and which benefit all Canadians. Examples include: development of light metals to reduce vehicle emissions for internal combustion engines; analysis of nuclear power plant components to improve reliability and safety; measurement of the hydrogen storage capacity of materials to support a shift to hydrogen-powered transport; development of targeted nanoparticles to enhance drug treatments; and fundamental studies of quantum materials to gain knowledge needed to develop room-temperature superconductors.
