Neutron science is a broad and diverse field of research. Understanding the nature of neutron interaction with matter constitutes a significant challenge for scientists since the discovery of the neutron. This challenge is addressed on multiple scales, from the individual particle scattered from a molecule or an atom in a lattice to the collective behavior of billions of neutrons in a nuclear reactor core. Overcoming this challenge enables scientists and engineers to use neutrons for various scientific, medical, industrial, and security purposes. Some recent neutronic studies will be reviewed in this seminar, mainly related to neutron transport, nuclear energy, and neutrino physics at the European Spallation Source (ESS) and the NEXT experiment.
