Neutrons techniques for the investigation of molecular dynamics

As neutrons have no electrical charge, they are a useful tool to study condensed and soft matter properties as they can penetrate deeply into it. Incoherent neutron scattering techniques give access to information about atomic motions at a sub-nanosecond time scale. Such molecular dynamics proofed to be of paramount importance for the functioning of biomolecules in addition to their three-dimensional structure. The scattering technique and a few types of typical instruments will be introduced. Then I will present some examples of applications, including investigations of the influence of hydration on lipid dynamics, high pressure effects on enzymes and whole cells and the action of crowding on protein motions.
