A webinar, HFIR instrument improvements provide new capabilities for world-leading research, will be held at 1 p.m. (EST) Wednesday, February 12, 2020. The webinar will highlight the instrument improvements and upgrades that took place during the extended outage of the reactor. Ten of 12 neutron scattering instruments underwent significant upgrades or improvements. Designed to provide new and important scientific capabilities, the HFIR instrument upgrades included more advanced beam delivery systems, enhanced sample environments, better optics, and improved data acquisition systems and detectors. Of the 10 instrument projects, five were considered major upgrades. This webinar will provide participants the opportunity to learn the details of these new capabilities from the instrument scientists before the deadline for submitting proposals for experiments anticipated to run May-December 2020. Proposals for beam time at HFIR and SNS will be accepted via the web-based proposal system until noon (EDT), February 26, 2020.
