|Los Alamos Neutron Science Center
|The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, a national user facility that produces intense
sources of pulsed protons and spallation neutrons for defense and civilian research
and applications. LANSCE is ideal for research in condensed-matter science and engineering,
accelerator science, nuclear physics, and radiography.
|Oak Ridge National Laboratory
|The High Flux Isotope Reactor (hfiR) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) operates
at a power level of 85 MW and produces a maximum neutron flux of 3x1015 cm-2s-1 in
its central flux trap. The neutron scattering facilities at the HFIR, which have been
constructed and operated with support from the US Department of Energy, are available
for outside use on problems of scientific merit. Oak Ridge will also be the site for
the accelerator-based Spallation Neutron Source and the ORNL/University of Tennessee
Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences.
|The Institute Laue Langevin
|The ILL is a fundamental research institute operating a high-flux reactor with many
experimental facilities. These instruments are available in user operation to scientists
coming from research laboratories in the member countries: France, Germany, United
Kingdon, and the associated members: Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Russia and Italy.
Experimental proposals are examined twice a year by the scientific council, a body
consisting of specialists from different countries. Invitations for accepted experiments
are issued several weeks before the start of the measurement. The measurement time
varies between a day and several weeks.
