Co-Located User Facilities
Prospective CINT users whose nanoscience research could benefit by access to CINT and neutron-based or high-magnetic-field experimental techniques are encouraged to consider submitting a joint proposal involving CINT and either of the user facilities below. The joint proposal should describe what research would be conducted at each user facility. These joint user proposals will receive special handling by the CINT User Program Office to ensure a coordinated review by CINT, LANSCE and/or NHMFL.
Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE)
The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center accepts user proposals for two different facilities:
- The Neutron Scattering Center employs a pulsed spallation neutron source equipped with time-of-flight spectrometers for neutron scattering studies of condensed-matter. Neutron scattering is a powerful technique for probing the microscopic structure and dynamics of condensed matter and is used in materials science, engineering, condensed matter physics, chemistry, biology, and geology.
- At LANSCE-Nuclear Science, high-energy neutrons and protons are used for basic and applied research in neutron nuclear science and weapons-related measurements.
National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL)
The Pulsed Magnetic Field Facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico, is one of three campuses of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), the other two being at Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL (continuous fields, magnetic resonance, and general headquarters) and the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL (ultra-low temperatures at high magnetic fields). The NHMFL is sponsored primarily by the National Science Foundation, Division of Materials Research, with additional support from the State of Florida and the U.S. Department of Energy.
Los Alamos provides unique resources to the Pulsed Magnetic Field Laboratory of the NHMFL in the form of a 1.4 GVA inertial storage motor-generator for high field pulsed magnets. In addition to the 60 Tesla Long Pulse Magnet powered by the motor-generator, the NHMFL features capacitor-driven pulsed magnets.
The NHMFL supports a user facility open to all qualified users, develops magnet technology in association with the private sector, and advances sciences and technology opportunities using high magnetic fields. Take a virtual tour of the NHMFL at Los Alamos.
