The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) are international research centres based in Grenoble. The two centres are at the leading edge of neutron and X-ray science and technology, They operate respectively one of the most intense neutron sources and X-rays sources in the world. Applications range from physics research to non-destructive material testing to healthcare. During the visit we will get an overview of the technologies used at ILL and ESRF and will be able to visit the neutron reactor and the synchrotron ring and the computing infrastructure used to collect and store data.


This visit is open to staff, fellows and technical students in the openlab project.
