Margie Olbinado und David Mannes vor dem Eingang zur Synchrotron Lichtquelle Schweiz SLS, in der die Untersuchungen mit Synchrotronlicht durchgeführt wurden. In unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft dazu liegt auf dem Gelände des PSI die Schweizer Spallations-Neutronenquelle SINQ, die Neutronen für weitere Analysen liefert.

No cutting-edge research without constant development, and no further development without actively engaged staff. HIPA has undergone several upgrades in the past 50 years, always expanding the range of scientific possibilities, and research into the further development of the facility itself is still ongoing. The team has grown accordingly.

PSI Center for Neutron and Muon Sciences

The PSI Center for Neutron and Muon Sciences uses neutrons and muons to explore and understand matter and materials.

300

The CNM center hosts 300 members of staff, in addition 40 PhD students perform their thesis work within CNM

5+1

The center is organized in 5 laboratories and 1 staff group.

3/30

CNM operates 3 of the 5 large scale user facilities: the Swiss spallation neutron source SINQ, the Swiss Muon Source SMuS and the facilities for particle physics CHIRSP with approximately 30 experimental stations open for users.

1700

The facilities in the CNM center are open to international access — with approximately 1700 annual user visits the associated user program is a key activity in the center.
