2014 Lujan Neutron Scattering Center: First Focused Call for Proposals


Lujan Logo

Due to the proposed cessation of funding for the Lujan Neutron Scattering Center operations from the DOE’s Office of Science Basic Energy Sciences, this call for proposals for Lujan Center instruments will be limited to NNSA related work across all NNSA sites, Work for Others (WFO), and LANL internal users. Proposals for Nuclear Science research (on FP5, 12 and 14) are already covered in the Nuclear Science proposal call.

The Lujan Neutron Scattering Center invites proposals addressing science of NNSA and LANL programmatic interest for the 2014 run cycle. Proposals that involve proprietary work or work for others (WFO) will also be considered using a full cost recovery model.

Call will be open from Tuesday May 6th, 2014 until 5:00 p.m. (MDT) Friday, June 6th, 2014.

Successful proposals will be scheduled between October 7th, 2014 and February 26th 2015.

Lujan Center capabilities include:

  • Neutron powder diffraction (high resolution, high intensity, engineering)
  • Neutron Single crystal diffraction
  • Neutron reflectometry (polarized and unpolarized)
  • Inelastic neutron scattering / spectroscopy
  • Small angle neutron scattering
  • Neutron radiography/tomography

Information on Lujan Center instruments and capabilities can be found on the Lujan instruments page. Additional information on sample environment and specialized ancillary equipment available can be found on online. For any other questions, please contact the Lujan User Program office (

Lujan Center areas of research include:

  • Local structure, equation of state, surfaces, Interfaces and defects
  • Residual and induced stress, phase transformations
  • Texture, corrosion, in-situ phase transformations under P,T,H
  • Polymers, membranes, proteins

For more information see Lujan Center Science Thrust Areas and Lujan Center User Resources.

Proposal Submission

Proposers are encouraged to contact Lujan scientists. Proposals may be submitted online from May 6th until 5 p.m. June 6th 2014. The proposal text should not exceed two pages. For information on how the proposal submission process works, go to the proposal process page.

To submit a classified proposal, please contact Dr. Anna Llobet (, 505-665-1367).
