Submit your proposals for experiments to run on the Spallation Neutron Source
The proposal call will close at noon March 27, 2019, for experiments anticipated to run at SNS from July to December in 2019.
Proposals for beam time at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will be accepted via the web-based proposal system until Noon (EDT), Wednesday, March 27, 2019. This call is for SNS instruments only for experiments anticipated to run July–December 2019.
HFIR is not included in the March proposal call due to an extended outage that began in November 2018. When HFIR resumes operation, the beam time will be reserved for experiments awarded time between November 2018 and June 2019.
Calls for General User Proposals occur twice a year. This is a competitive process, involving external peer review. Beam time is granted based on scientific importance and research feasibility.
To be considered for the upcoming run cycles at SNS, proposals can be submitted any time before the indicated deadline. Once a proposal call closes, the next call will begin accepting proposals.
