Neutron source BERII
The research reactor BER II delivers neutron beams for a wide range of scientific investigations, in particular for the materials sciences. Both thermal and cold neutrons are generated. These pass through several neutron guide tubes to the the different measuring sites. What is so special about the HZB in this respect are the unique environments for the test pieces.
The supervisory board of HZB has decided that the neutron source BER II will discontinue its operation by the end of 2019.
