March 2005
Initial instrument setup at LENS. SANS installed in the foreground. This instrument is prototypes designed more for studying the source and commissioning detectors than for investigating materials due to the very low beam power (150W).

April 2005
Cryogenic moderator inserted into the Target Moderator Reflector Assembly.

April 2005
First cold neutron spectrum recorded from the LENS moderator. The simulation is from an MCNP calculation with the smeth22 kernel.

August 2005
First studies of neutron radiation effects in electronic cirtuits.
