You are invited to apply for time on the neutron beam instruments at the
NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). 

The deadline for new proposals is July 16, 2002
Program Proposals are not being accepted for this proposal round
Quick Access Proposals may be submitted at any time, but are held to a
higher standard
Continuation Proposals will be accepted until August 15, 2002 
The latter must be accompanied by an experimental report

Approved new and continuation proposals will be allocated instrument time in
the period from approximately September 2002 through April 2003

Please see our Web pages ( http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/
<http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/>  ) for details.   

Instruments being offered in the current call for proposals are: 

    Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) - 30 m (NG3) 
    Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) - 30 m (NG7) 
    Ultra-Small Angle Neutron Scattering (USANS) instrument
    Reflectometer - horizontal geometry 
    Reflectometer - vertical geometry 
    Cold Neutron Triple-Axis with Polarized Beam Option (SPINS) 
    Backscattering Spectrometer 
    Disk-Chopper Spectrometer 
    Neutron Spin-Echo Spectrometer 
    Filter-Analyzer Spectrometer (FANS)

Proposals for the following instruments may be submitted at any time: 

    High resolution powder diffractometer 
    Cold Neutron Depth Profiling Station 
    Prompt-Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis Station 

If accepted, proposals for the latter three instruments usually receive
instrument time in the subsequent reactor cycle 
(i.e., in 1-3 months).

If you wish to be placed on the NCNR electronic mail list, please contact
linda.clutter at nist.gov. 

Please submit your proposals by using our Web page proposal form, which
permits quick and efficient processing of your submission. 

We would appreciate being informed of any papers published or in press since
October 1, 2001, that have resulted from NCNR instrument time or from
collaboration with NCNR staff.  Please send citation references to

Additional information: 

Monetary assistance is available through an outreach program of the
University of Maryland, for new NCNR users from U.S. universities (up to
$100/day of allocated instrument time, to a maximum of $500). Preference is
given to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty. See
details at http:// <http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/outreach.html>
www.ncnr.nist.gov/outreach.html <http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/outreach.html> 

Travel support is also available for graduate students not yet committed to
specific thesis projects.  Such students may be supported on a visit to the
NCNR to observe or participate in an experiment, accompanying a university
group with a scheduled experiment. See details at http://
<http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/outreach.html> www.ncnr.nist.gov/outreach.html

Applicants should list publications resulting from use of previously
allocated instrument time.  There is a strict length limit of 800 words for
the description of research section.
