Neutrons4Science: Enter the world of neutrons! Just be curious! https://pan-training.eu/materials/neutrons4science-enter-the-world-of-neutrons-just-be-curious Enter the world of neutrons! They are a powerful and highly acclaimed tool not only for the study of condensed matter (the world we live in) but also for confirming our current understanding of physics. What's more, you don't even need to be a scientist to use Neutrons4Science. Just be curious! Neutrons and protons are elementary particles constituting the nucleus of atoms. The neutron has no electric charge but has a spin and a magnetic moment. Neutron beams - like beams of X-rays, electrons or muons - are valuable tools for studying the multitude of materials that surround us in our daily lives (alloys, magnets, superconductors, polymers, colloids, proteins, biological systems, …). However, the way neutrons interact with matter is quite unique and, as a result, it can often reveal to us what is normally hidden. With Neutrons4Science you can discover one of the many types of neutron spectroscopy. The neutron also answers questions on the very foundations of physics, helping us to solve some of the great mysteries of the universe (Is the Grand Unified Theory valid? Is there a fifth fundamental force? ...) As an example, Neutrons4Science gives you insights to a brand new method of neutron spectroscopy that takes advantage of the quantum states of this light neutral particle. Neutrons4Science lets you experience neutron science through three interactive 3D animations: • ThALES: Use a neutron spectrometer (ILL ThALES) as if you were performing a real experiment. • Magnons: Discover the spin waves that exist inside magnetic materials and understand how ThALES can observe them. • GRANIT: Discover an innovative gravitational spectrometer (ILL GRANIT) based on neutron quantum states in a gravitational field. These three educational animations were developed with the help of scientists at the "Institut Laue-Langevin", one of the world's flagship facilities for neutron science. This project was funded by the ILL and the LPSC and developed by Ipter (out of business since 2015). neutron, ILL ThALES, neutron spectrometer, Magnons, gravitational spectrometer, GRANIT general public

The Braggs Legacy https://pan-training.eu/materials/the-braggs-legacy The scientific and human story behind the past, present and future of one of the most important ever developments in science. 100 years after it was first developed, crystallography is still a driving force of scientific discovery and innovation. Revealing the hidden structure and beauty of materials, it gives an insight into the invisible. This film from Diamond Light Source celebrates the work and lives of Sir William Henry Bragg and his son, Sir William Lawrence Bragg. Together, they established a new scientific discipline. A son with the theoretical understanding and father with the experimental technique to harness this knowledge. The technique emerged a century ago, but its power to reveal the minutiae of matter is as strong today as it was then. This film journeys through the key experiments and insights from 1912, and the torrent of discoveries that followed. With interviews and commentaries from leading scientists and historians of today, it is an exploration of the scientific and human story behind the past, present and future of one of the most important ever developments in science. crystallography bragg's law, crystallography, history general public
