The Lund Broad-band Neutron Facility provides access to a variety of neutron sources together with a well-established user infrastructure. Neutrons from radioactive sources have been successfully employed for the research and development of both detectors and materials for the European Spallation Source. A recently procured d-t neutron generator delivers higher neutron fluxes than those provided by the radioactive sources, and further allows for pulsed operation. With the currently on-going construction of a dedicated neutron beam-line at our 3 MeV Pelletron accelerator, the facility is anticipated to produce approximately 1010 n/s. Cost-effective access to neutrons as well as a platform for educational purposes are the ultimate goals of the project.
