ANSTO is now calling for proposals for the following neutron-beam instruments and facilities:

ECHIDNA (high-resolution powder diffractometer)
WOMBAT (high-intensity powder diffractometer)
KOALA (Laue diffractometer)
KOWARI (strain scanner)
TAIPAN (thermal 3-axis spectrometer)
QUOKKA (small-angle neutron scattering instrument)
PLATYPUS (neutron reflectometer)
DINGO (neutron radiography, tomography and imaging station)
Biological and Chemical Deuteration (at the National Deuteration Facility – NDF)

Proposals should be submitted using our on-line system Deadline: 15 March 2014.

  • For single visit proposals for neutron instruments, select round “2014-2 Neutron”
  • For 3 year program proposals for neutron instruments, select “2014-2 Neutron Program”
  • For National Deuteration Facility proposals, select round “2014-2 Deuteration”

Experimental reports and Publications

Users who have carried out experiments on one of the neutron-beam instruments are required to complete an experimental report and to enter relevant publications in the on-line user portal. Both can be submitted on-line under the “Completed Experiments” link on your home page on the portal. Note that the Program Advisory Committee will consider the track records of our users when awarding beamtime.

The application is for beam-time requests and does not include travel or accommodation support. However, successful applications from researchers from AINSE member institutions will automatically be forwarded to AINSE for consideration of travel/accommodation support.
