"Applications of Neutron Scattering in Materials Science and Engineering"
The vitality of today's modern technological society is increasingly
dependent upon the use of sophisticated engineered materials. Because the
macroscopic properties of such materials are often dictated by their
microscopic structure, materials scientists and engineers use a variety of
techniques to better understand them on an atomic or molecular scale.
Neutron scattering is one such technique, but is not commonly utilized by
the materials community. This symposium will present important applications
of neutron scattering that demonstrate its advantages for solving problems
in materials science and engineering. Topics include study of the
structural, magnetic, and dynamical behavior of materials on length scales
ranging from the distance between atoms to the size of biological and
polymer macro-molecules, characterization of residual stresses, and the
properties of surfaces and interfaces.
The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science has funded the construction
of a new, accelerator-based neutron source, the Spallation Neutron Source
(SNS), at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The SNS is currently the nations
largest scientific project and will be the world's most powerful pulsed
neutron source. Like other DOE facilities, the SNS will be a user facility
open to scientists and engineers from universities, industry, and government
