The 3Helium Supply Crisis  

The Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France invited the Directors of all the major neutron facilities in Europe, the US, Australia, Japan, and China to meet and discuss how to find solutions to such global problems as new detectors without 3Helium, common software platforms for data reduction, and data policy.

At their meeting on 5 March, it was agreed to establish three joint programmes to develop alternative technologies for neutron detectors.

This meeting represents an important step forward in securing the future development of novel neutron instruments which require large area detectors but will no longer be able to use 3Helium. It also underlines the value of a regular meeting between Directors of major neutron facilities, inaugurated during the 2009 International Conference for Neutron Scattering in Knoxville, USA, and set to continue alongside future major neutron meetings.
