Welcome to the French Neutron Scattering Association website


The French Neutron Scattering Association (SFN: Société Française de la Neutronique) is a scientific society that was founded in 1994 to promote neutrons in the scientific community and to federate the French community of neutron scatterers from all scientific fields. This site serves as a space for sharing information on neutron scattering and association members can upload their contributions after logging in with their account.
