A University of Manitoba physicist is part of an international research team developing a cancer treatment method that uses magnetic nanoparticles to kill tumours with heat. Continue reading Neutrons Aid the Development of Cancer-Killing Nanoparticles
The Canadian energy sector has developed standard practices to ensure that oil and gas pipelines remain safe as they age. For the past decade, these standard practices have been influenced by a team of researchers, including one University of Alberta professor and his industrial partners, who use neutron beams to better understand stress and corrosion in pipeline steel. Continue reading Ensuring oil and gas pipeline integrity using neutron beams
With sponsorship from Tesla Motors, one ‘Gold medal’ Canadian scientist is using neutron beams in the quest to reduce the cost of energy storage technologies, which is vital for the widespread adoption of renewable energy sources and electric vehicles.
Government and academic researchers use neutron beams to test a new repair technology capable of supporting the aerospace industry to adopt more fuel-efficient jet engines. Continue reading Developing Technology for Repairing Advanced Jet Engines
Rolls‑Royce has applied for a patent for a new material for use in higher-efficiency jet engines, after collaborating with University of Cambridge scientists to study new alloys using neutron beams.
Neutron beams reveal the molecular mechanisms behind a new technology that could reduce the risk of complications and death from heart bypass surgery and dialysis. The same technology might soon help more women survive ovarian cancer. Continue reading Increasing Bio-Compatibility of Medical Devices
