Neutron beam line super-mirror guide tube

Super-mirror guide tube at neutron beam line

Neutrons generated with a proton accelerator are effciently transported by passing through a guide tube which is assembled from super-mirror glass substrates, and it is used for various reserch and development of structure and function of materials, elementary particle and nuclear physics and structure and function of protein, and new medicines etc.
