Optically controlled slow neutrons are applied to study weak interaction, gravitational interaction and exotic interactions related to new physics beyond the standard model.
The efficacy of the neutron beam is increasing by the neutron optics and the application is spreading to fundamental physics and industrial uses.
The multilayers neutron mirrors and high counting rate neutron detectors are developing.
The Nagoya University Accelerator-driven Neutron Source (NUANS) is also now constructing at main campus of Nagoya University.
The aims of this neutron source are 1) Development of BNCT(Boron Neutron Capture Therapy) system,
2) neutron imaging system, 3) neutron device development.
