Oak Ridge National Labs - Duke Joint Workshop in Neutron Science and Scattering
Friday, September 18, 2015
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
Neutron scattering, neutron diffraction, and neutron imaging provide information that is highly complementary to that from other microscopic scattering techniques, and more recent technical developments have fueled the expansion of the field, originally focused on condensed matter physics, into materials science, soft matter and biomolecular systems, engineering, and the arts. Exciting opportunities exist, for specialists as well as non-specialists, to do neutron research at ORNL¿s state-of-the-art facilities, either through collaborations with ORNL researchers or as external users. The NScD operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States' highest flux reactor-based neutron source and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world's most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scattering, neutron diffraction, and neutron imaging research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation.
