New Opportunities for Neutron Scattering at the NIST Center for Neutron Research
The NIST Center for Neutron Research is in the final year of an Expansion Initiative to increase its cold neutron measurement capability by more than 25 percent by installing a new cold source and new beamlines, and set the foundation for a new generation of world-class instruments directly supporting the needs of science and industry. Recent Initiative activities at the NCNR including the specification and installation of a new guide suite and developments in detectors and novel instrumentation will be discussed in some detail, particularly as it relates to new science opportunities and user activity.
