Seminar: Present Performance and Future Opportunities at the ORNL Spallation Neutron Source

The next seminar in the joint UK seminar series will be given by Dr. Fulvia Pilat of Jefferson Laboratory, and will discuss the present performance and future opportunities at the ORNL Spallation Neutron Source. The talk will be given via zoom at 16:15 on Thursday 27th January, and can be accessed on the seminar series Indico page.


The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in operations since 2006, is the world's highest power spallation neutron source, enabled by the most powerful operating super-conducting hadron linac. I will overview the SNS scientific mission, the operational performance and the plans for the facility upgrade. I will also discuss the SNS potential strategic and scientific capabilities complementary to the present neutron scattering mission.
