Oak Ridge National Laboratory- Neutron Scattering Science Call for Proposals

The ORAU University Partnerships Office is pleased to provide the information below regarding a program available to all institutions.

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 NOON EASTERN TIMEWednesday, March 6, 2013.  This call is for experiments anticipated to run July through December 2013.

Beam time is granted through our general user program, which is open to all. In addition, we have opportunities for extended collaboration through programs such as internships and postdoctoral programs. The instruments at HFIR and SNS can be used free of charge with the understanding that researchers will publish their results, making them available to the scientific community.

Proposals will be reviewed for feasibility, safety, and potential for high-impact science.  Users for approved projects must complete access and training requirements prior to beginning experiments. Specific information about this call and about each of the instruments available during this experimental period is included on the ORNL Neutron Sciences web site at http://neutrons.ornl.gov/.  To learn more about submitting a proposal for beam time, go tohttp://neutrons.ornl.gov/users/proposals.shtml or directly to the proposal system at www.ornl.gov/sci/iums/ipts/.
