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:
