ORNL scientists used neutrons to understand how water flows through fractured rock. Their results help improve models for drilling, hydraulic fracturing and underground storage of carbon dioxide
Neutrons are produced at large research infrastructures. Researchers use them to look inside materials. With neutrons one can e.g. look inside a car engine, investigate drug delivery, see how plants uptake water, get insights into the development of superconductors.
