China's first spallation neutron source, the world's fourth such facility, is in Dongguan. As a "super microscope", China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) is vital in understanding the characteristics and behaviour of certain materials. It can be applied in a wide range of fields, including life science, new energy and nanotechnology. It is like a "super magnet", attracting the most advanced scientific research institutions and top talents from all over the world.

The academician Chen Hesheng, also the general director of the project, once predicted that "in a few years, it will be a commonplace thing to encounter world-class scientists in Songshan Lake." Now, the words have gradually become a reality. From 2019 to 2020, the overseas scientists Dr Wolfgang Kreuzpaintner and Dr Syed Mohd Amir joined the CSNS, helping to build a high-quality Dongguan.
