3/27/15 - Proposals sought for high flux isotope reactor, spallation neutron source beam time

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 11 a.m. on April 8. This call is for experiments anticipated to run July through December.

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 To learn more about submitting a proposal for beam time, go to or directly to the proposal system at

All questions pertaining to this Call for Proposals should be addressed to the Neutron Scattering Science User Office at or 865-574-4600.
