Neutrons in Soft Matter is the first guide of its kind to focus on the use of instruments in neutron research. It addresses the anticipated increase in demand for skilled researchers in the field, providing scientists with the tools they need to make the transition from the laboratory to large neutron facilities.
Written by a team of experts in neutron research, this guidebook provides clear instructions on using neutron scattering techniques to conduct experiments in diverse areas, including biotechnology, nanotechnology, environmental science, and energy-related fields. It includes highly useful information for materials scientists, physicists, chemists, and biologists working with soft matter such as polymers, gels, micelles, supramolecules, and biomolecules, and instrumentation for them using steady and pulsed neutron sources.
Complete coverage, from theory to applications, includes:
The basic concepts of neutron scattering
Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), neutron reflectometry, quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering, and neutron imaging
Numerous applications of small and large molecules, biomolecules, and gels
Global neutron sources and facilities with an overview of different reactors
Timely, practical, and comprehensive, Neutrons in Soft Matter is an excellent resource for chemists, materials scientists, physicists, biologists, and anyone who would like to deepen his or her understanding of neutron scattering techniques.
