John Root, director of the neutron beam centre, said more and more scientists are interested in exploring various aspects of nanotechnology, something the new reflectometer can do.
An example of how the device will benefit Canadians is through research that will be done on how blood clots form on the surfaces of medical implants. Other examples include a study of metal corrosion, specifically related to the long-term storage of nuclear material, and research into using nanotechnology to store hydrogen. Ted Hewitt, vice-president of research at the University of Western Ontario, said science, like the research that will be conducted with the new device, makes a tangible difference in the world in which we live.
