LaCNS Beam Time Proposals


LaCNS researchers completed or received approval for over 100 beam time experiments at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and five other laboratories, including three international locations. At ORNL, 93 experiments were carried out or are waiting to be scheduled.  These experiments were performed on 20 different instrument types for a total of 270 days. As of summer 2017 another 19 proposals are under review and represent about 44 days of beam time.

Researchers completed/confirmed 15 experiments at other locations including: Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Chicago, Illinois; National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD; Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), Berlin, Germany; FRM-II in Juelich, Germany; and the Laboratoire Leon Brillouin, Saclay, France.
