On April 25, 2019 IFE’s board of directors decided to permanently close operations at the JEEP II reactor at Kjeller.  IFE is working to find alternative solutions for the activities related to materials characterization using neutron beams. Possible options for moving existing instrumentation in NcNeutron, as well as new instruments in the design phase, to other research reactors in Europe will be explored.

For more information about the reasons for closure of the reactor, see the IFE web page.
