Discovery science drives innovation and underpins the technological advances that will solve some of society’s most challenging issues, including clean energy technologies, better medicines, safe potable water, and addressing aging transportation infrastructures. Many of these advances will arise from basic research into new materials and new ways to optimize our use of existing materials. Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s neutron sources provide cutting-edge scientific tools to probe the structure and dynamics of matter in unique ways. This insight is fundamental to advancing our ability to discover, design, control, and use new materials to address society’s most pressing needs.

The Spallation Neutron Source Second Target Station (STS) will be a new, high-brightness source optimized for production of cold neutrons and will provide transformational new capabilities that complement the strengths of the current ORNL neutron sources. The high brightness of cold neutrons will enable time-resolved measurements of kinetic processes and provide more intense neutron beams to study smaller samples of newly discovered materials or materials under extreme environmental conditions. The STS pulse rate of 15 Hz will enable simultaneous measurement of hierarchical architectures across a broad range of length scales.

Join us for an insightful workshop on the Second Target Station (STS) at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS). This workshop will feature updates and technical details on the STS project and a discussion of the recent Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee report, which listed some action items for refining the STS science case and redefining the instrument suite to support that science case. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this workshop invites you to be part of the conversation shaping the future of neutron research.
