"The Spallation Neutron Source: A Powerful Tool for Materials Research"


Thom Mason , Director, Spallation Neutron Source - Oak Ridge National Laboratory
[Host: Seunghun Lee]
ABSTRACT:
The wavelengths and energies of thermal and cold neutrons are ideally matched to the length and energy scales in the materials that underpin technologies of the present and future: ranging from semiconductors to magnetic devices, composites to biomaterials and polymers. The Spallation Neutron Source will use an accelerator to produce the most intense beams of neutrons in the world when it is complete in 2006. The project is being built by a collaboration of six U.S. Department of Energy laboratories. It will serve a diverse community of users drawn from academia, industry, and government labs with interests in condensed matter physics, chemistry, engineering materials, biology, and beyond.
