nTOF is CERN's neutron time-of-flight facility. Featuring two neutron beam lines and two experimental halls, nTOF is producing results that are important for nuclear astrophysics and to develop novel solutions in nuclear technology. Among the main features of nTOF, are the wide neutron energy range going from the meV up to the GeV region and the very high number of neutrons per proton burst. Consisting of about 150 researchers from 40 institutes, the nTOF collaboration is ready to start another year of experiments from its scientific programme.
