Commission on Neutron Scattering

The Commission

The Commission on Neutron Diffraction was established at the 7th General Assembly in Moscow, in 1966. The proposal at that time is given below.

The Commission on Neutron Diffraction shall be concerned with those aspects of crystallography which can be studied almost uniquely by using neutron beams.

The name was changed to Commission on Neutron Scattering by the General Assembly at the Beijing meeting in 1993. The Commission requested the change in name because it wished to represent and serve all neutron scatterers who consider that they use crystallographic techniques.


The Website

This website provides information on the IUCr Commission on Neutron Scattering, and it will give information and sites of interest for crystallographers wanting to use neutron scattering techniques.
