Bragg institute: international leader in neutron beam and x-ray science
Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Australia’s new world-class research reactor, OPAL, provides a unique opportunity for the nation’s scientists to expand their horizons. OPAL will enhance the nuclear capabilities of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), enabling us to increase the support we provide for Australia’s health, environmental and industrial research, as well as the country’s strategic objectives. Since 1958, ANSTO and its forebears have enabled Australian researchers and their counterparts from around the world to use the unique insights afforded by neutron beam science to increase fundamental scientific knowledge and assist numerous industries. The establishment of the Bragg Institute in 2002 was an essential step towards making such insights more readily available to an increasingly broad range of researchers and industries within Australia and the Asia- Pacific region. We see the opportunity for major growth in areas such as advanced materials, biosciences, the earth sciences and engineering.
