Advancing the use of neutrons for Swedish research

What is SNSS?

We are an organisation open to all those who are using,
or interested in the use of, neutron scattering techniques.

The Board

With the intention of reflecting as many of the Swedish universities active in the neutron scattering community, SNSS employs a roster of board members from universities all over Sweden.

Documents & Policies

In neutron scattering experiments, neutrons are fired at a nuclei of atoms in molecules and materials. When the uncharged particles collide with  the sample material, they change direction – they scatter. This gives unique information on structure and dynamics of molecules and materials.
