Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL)
The Institut Laue-Langevin is an international research centre at the leading edge of neutron science and technology.
As the world’s flagship centre for neutron science, the ILL provides scientists with a very high flux of neutrons feeding some 40 state-of-the-art instruments, which are constantly being developed and upgraded.
As a service institute, the ILL makes its facilities and expertise available to visiting scientists. Every year, about 1400 researchers from over 40 countries visit the ILL and 640 experiments selected by a scientific review committee are performed. Research focuses primarily on fundamental science in a variety of fields: condensed matter physics, chemistry, biology, nuclear physics and materials science, etc.
The ILL also collaborates closely and at different levels of confidentiality with the R&D departments of industrial enterprises.
ILL is funded and managed by France, Germany and the United Kingdom, in partnership with ten other countries.
