A novel, university-based pulsed neutron source neutron source for materials research, development of innovations in neutron science, and education.
Principal Investigator: Mike Snow
Neutron Moderator Development
The unique nature of the LENS source is being exploited to develop new moderator concepts to increase the intensity of cold and very cold neutron beams
Principal Investigator: David Baxter
Neutrons from LENS are used for research involving polarized neutrons, including polarized 3He for neutron polarization, spin echo methods and the development of new devices involving neutron spin manipulation
Principal Investigator: Roger Pynn
