Ultra small angle neutron scattering is useful for studies of pores and cracks in rocks, cement or engineering materials, very large biological or polymer molecules or macromolecular assemblies, and mesoscopic magnetic particles.

The range of interest includes bacteria, blood, cements, clays, clusters in metals, coals, colloids, complex fluids, emulsions, foams, food, gels, granular materials, hydrogels, membranes, micellar systems, minerals and mineral processing, nanocomposites, nanotechnology, phase transitions, polymer blends, polymers, porous materials, powders, precipitates, proteins, rocks, thin metallic or organic films, viruses, etc.

The instrument can accommodatemultilevel structures in solids and liquids, reflecting not only nanometre-sized molecules and particles, but also µm-sized aggregates and agglomerates can be probed by neutron diffraction.
