Seminar: Expansion of Research Facilities at the NIST Center for Neutron Research
The NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) has just returned to full-time operation after completing the first phases of a major expansion. The increasing demand for neutrons by the research community has stimulated an 80% increase in the area of the guide hall, which will house five new guides with five new instruments to supplement the existing nineteen cold and thermal neutron stations. A second small, bright cold source is installed and operating in a beam tube. Upgrades and modifications to existing instruments are underway, and additional improvements have been made to the reactor plant and infrastructure. The new cold-neutron analytical chemistry station for prompt-gamma activation analysis and neutron depth profiling will offer higher flux than in existing positions, and a more open and flexible geometry for beam and sample conditioning.
