The Research Community

Materials researchers who use neutron beams are distributed across Canada, in approximate proportion to the distribution of universities and population. They come from industry, government labs, and from over 30 universities and about 60 university departments, representing physics, chemistry, life sciences, materials science and engineering.

In addition, the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre (CNBC) welcomes foreign scientists to Canada, thereby encouraging collaborations and the welcome of Canadian researchers in the global network of about 20 major neutron beam user facilities. International collaborations involving the CNBC include over a 100 institutions in more than 20 countries during a typical five-year period.

The following map shows the organizations whose researchers have used the CNBC in the 5.5 years from January 2011 to July 2016.
