The MDN laboratory was created by L. Néel and E.F. Bertaut in the early sixties in order to study condensed matter physics by means of neutron scattering techniques.

Since 1995, its activity is based on the operation of three CRG intruments (IN12, IN22 and D23) installed at Institut Laue Langevin.

The laboratory is specialized in :
- Fundamental study of magnetism.
- The developpment of high-performance neutron instrumentation.
