My personal interpretation of the NWO review of PEARL (progress), now for the third time, is that the committee members were positively impressed by the performance of the instrument. Credits from neutron experts to everybody that works or worked on PEARL over the last five years! It is, yes, 5 YEARS that the PEARL project is running, and the first experiments are simply REWARDING.
Which is good news for Dutch neutron diffractonists who need a world class instrument “next door” to their lab. Coming online soon….
