Welcome to Muonsources.org

Muons are short-lived particles occurring naturally which can be reproduced at large research infrastructures. Researchers use them to study superconductors, molecular systems, chemical reactions, novel battery materials, hydrogen behaviour, etc.

This website aims to provide information about muon facilities and muon research worldwide. Explore:

    Neutrons, muons and the battery revolution

    Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery is used in almost all if not all electronic personal devices and is starting to be used in electric and hybrid vehicles. By 2018 the global demand for Li-ion battery power (for consumer and electric vehicle use) is expected to reach 100 GW hours. They may well also have an important role to play as storage devices for renewable energy. As our Christmas lights shine in the dwindling daylight it begs the question “what happens to our renewable energy supply when the wind doesn't blow or the Sun doesn't shine?" ...
