Industrial Applications Program

Neutron Scattering Tailored for Industrial Research and Development

Neutrons play a definitive role in our understanding of the material world around us. They allow scientists to look inside the structure of matter, showing where atoms are and what atoms do. The unique capabilities of neutron scattering techniques have already attracted the attention of industrial and applied scientists.  The mission of the Shull Wollan Center Industrial Applications Program is to promote industry engagement with two of the most powerful neutron science facilities in the world  - the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science, Scientific User Facilities.
