Program Description: The NCNR Comprehensive Grant Program provides funding to eligible proposers to support research involving Neutron Research and Spectroscopy specifically aimed at assisting visiting researchers at the NCNR, developing new instrumentation for Neutron Research, conducting collaborative research with NIST scientists, and to conduct other outreach and educational activities that advance the use of neutrons by U.S. academia and industrial scientists. This will entail stationing scientific staff at the NCNR who, in collaboration with NIST and visiting scientists, advance these objectives. Proposers and team members must possess the education, experience, and training to pursue and advance the field of Neutron Scattering efficiently. In addition, the proposer and team members must possess a demonstrated record of excellence in research involving neutron scattering methods.
Examples of jointly-pursued activities under previous cooperative agreements include the integration of expert academia research and technical staff to assist neutron users at the NCNR in conducting their scientific research on various neutron instruments, the design and development of state-of-the-art double-focusing neutron monochromator for use on MACS (the Multi-Analyzer Crystal Spectrometer), studies of advanced applications of neutron residual stress methods, the design and development of a neutron phase space transformation chopper for use on the High-Flux Backscattering Spectrometer (HFBS), and computer modeling studies of neutron scattering measurements from biomolecular systems.
