About CNSS















Chinese Neutron Scattering Society

     Chinese Neutron Scattering Society (CNSS) was formally established as a branch of the Chinese Physical Society  in 2012, linked to Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). CNSS is a member of Asia-Oceania Neutron Scattering Association (AONSA), and also is an academic organization of Chinese scientists and users who engaged in the research and application of neutron-scattering sciences. The mission of the society are to promote the neutron scattering sciences and applications in all related fields, such as condensed-matter physics, chemistry, material science, biology, polymer and soft material, geoscience, mechanical processing, nuclear physics, proton radiography and medicine...etc, and to making the road map of the development of the neutron scattering sciences in China, as well as  to cultivate personnel for improving the research and application levels of neutron scattering in China. 

   The major facilities of the neutron scattering opened to users in China are: the China Advanced Research Reactor (CARR) and China Mianyang Research Reactor (CMRR). The China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) is being constructed in Dongguan, Guangdong Province. The research and application of the neutron scattering sciences are developing rapidly in China. In order to coordinate and promote the research and application of the neutron scattering, CNSS was thus established under the support of Chinese Physical Society. The director is CAS Academician Hesheng Chen, and deputy directors are Prof. Dongfeng Chen, Prof. Yuanbai Chen, Prof. Shuming Peng and Prof. Fangwei Wang. CNSS will contribute to promote the efficient operation and open of the advanced neutron sources in China, and to provide a platform for international communication and cooperation in the neutron scattering fields. The members of CNSS include the scientists and engineers from all research institutions and universities in the related fileds.
