Neutron Beams Could Help Reveal the Elusive ‘Fifth Force’ of Nature, Scientists Say

ScienceAlert
"Even though silicon is ubiquitous, we are still learning about its most basic properties," says physicist Albert Young of North Carolina State University. “The neutron, because it has no charge, is excellent to use as a probe because it doesn’t interact strongly with electrons inside the material. X-rays have some drawbacks when measuring atomic forces within a material due to their interaction with electrons.”
