Phoenix builds the world’s strongest accelerator-driven fusion neutron generators, useful for applications ranging from industrial neutron radiography and radiation hardening to neutron activation analysis and medical isotope production. The Phoenix Neutron Imaging Center in Fitchburg, Wisconsin is the first commercial, non-reactor neutron radiography facility capable of producing neutron images of the highest measurable quality, and our systems have been applied to nuclear fuel assay, ion implantation, and standoff explosives detection, among other applications.

Our neutron imaging systems and other capacities will be available through September to December for research purposes, including radiation effects testing and neutron activation. Submit your application now to reserve time for your research!
