Call for User Proposals: High-Impact Nanoscience Research
The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is soliciting proposals for user-initiated nanoscience research that will make effective use of CNMS facilities and staff expertise. The CNMS nanoscience research program provides users with access to a broad range of capabilities for nanomaterials design, synthesis, characterization, and theory/modeling/simulation in order to carry out studies that will significantly advance our understanding of nanoscale phenomena and develop functional nanomaterials systems. Access is provided at no cost to users for research that is in the public domain and intended for publication in the open literature.
For more information on this solicitation and submission guidelines, please see the website. Submission deadline is October 21, 2015.
ORNL’s SNS User Meeting and STS Workshop is approaching
The Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is holding a 1 and a half day Spallation Neutron Source/High Flux Isotope Reactor (SNS/HFIR) User Meeting, October 26–27, 2015. The aim of this meeting is to bring together current and potential neutron users to discuss recent scientific results utilizing neutrons. This meeting will emphasize current and emerging research trends that will influence the development of new neutron facilities, specifically the STS at ORNL, For more information on the SNS/HFIR user meeting, please see the website. Registration deadline is October 9, 2015.
Note, Steve McInstoh (ChemE) will be giving a talk at the SNS/HFIR user meeting and is available to anyone for questions or information. Email Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following this meeting, the Second Target Station (STS) Workshop will be held on October 27–29, 2015. The forum will be used to update the user community on the planning for the STS, to engage the users in the process of moving the STS forward, and to seek the community’s input on all aspects of the project. For more information on the STS workshop, please see the website. Registration will open soon (Please note that this is a separate registration).
