Neutron Scattering Science Call for Proposals

Proposals for beam time at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) and Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will be accepted via the web-based proposal system until 12:00 (NOON) EASTERN TIME, Wednesday, September 11, 2013.  This call is for experiments anticipated to run from January through June 2014.

Proposals will be reviewed for feasibility, safety, and potential for high-impact science. Previously submitted proposals may be used as the basis for new proposals.  Before beginning approved experiments, users must complete access and training requirements and ensure that the appropriate user agreements are in place. Specific information about this call and about each of the instruments available during the experimental period is included on the ORNL Neutron Sciences web site at  To learn more about submitting a proposal for beam time, go to or directly to the proposal system at
