*Los Alamos Neutron Science Center Call for Proposals*
Run Cycle Beginning October 1, 2006

You are invited to submit a proposal to apply for beam time at the Los 
Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) for the run cycle starting 
*October 1, 2006 and ending December 23, 2006*.  The *deadline for 
submitting the proposals is 8:00 a.m. (0800) Mountain Daylight Time, 
Monday, July 3, 2006*.  Any proposals submitted after the due date will 
not be reviewed by the Program Advisory Committees and must be 
resubmitted for the following run cycle or as an out of cycle, rapid 
access proposal.  *Rapid access* proposals may be submitted at any time, 
but require compelling evidence of sufficient scientific urgency to 
justify special scheduling.

Instruments/flight paths available in the current call for proposals are:

*Lujan Neutron Scattering Center*

1.    Polarized Beam Reflectometer (Asterix)
2.    Filter Difference Spectrometer (FDS)
3.    High-Intensity Powder Diffractometer (HIPD)
4.    High-Pressure Preferred Orientation Diffractometer (HIPPO)
5.    Low Q Diffractometer (LQD)
6.    Neutron Powder Diffractometer (NPDF)
7.    Protein Crystallography Station (PCS)
8.    High-Resolution Chopper Spectrometer (Pharos)
9.    Spectrometer for Materials Research at Temperature and Stress (SMARTS)
10.    Surface Profile Analysis Reflectometer (SPEAR)

Proposals for the following instruments will be accepted, although user 
support will be very limited:

11.    Single Crystal Diffractometer (SCD)
12.    Transmission Spectroscopy (Flight Path 5)

*Weapons Neutron Research (WNR) Facility*

1.    Target 1:    Flight path 5 (1FP5)
Flight path 14 (DANCE) capture reactions, fission, ?-ray measurements

2.    Target 2:    (Blue Room, proton irradiations)

3.    Target 4:    Flight Path 90L (4FP90L) fission, charged particle 
Flight Path 30L (4FP30L) ICE House, single event effects
Flight path 15L (4FP15L)
Flight path 15R (4FP15R) few-body physics
Flight path 30R (4FP30R) FIGARO, (n,z) reactions
Flight path 60R (4FP60R) GEANIE

Because of their impact on the overall user program, proposals for sole 
use experiments (i.e., those that require dedicated facility operation) 
should be discussed with the management of WNR so that policies 
associated with such experiments and the prospect of them being 
accommodated can be explained.

*Proposal Guidance and Submission*
Proposals must be submitted using the process on the LANSCE website; 
only proposals submitted in this manner will be accepted.  To access the 
proposal submission sites, log onto the LANSCE home page 
(lansce.lanl.gov).  On this page there are links to the Lujan Center via 
Lujan Resources or to Nuclear and Neutron Science through Nuclear 
Science Resources.  Under Lujan Resources click on the Lujan Proposal 
Submission Site to submit a proposal to be run at this facility or under 
Nuclear Science Resources click on NS (WNR) Proposal Submission Site to 
submit a nuclear science proposal.

Links to detailed instructions for preparing the proposals can be found 
on the proposal submission sites under "Resources and Information."  
Please assure that you address all of pertinent items listed under "What 
Your Proposal Must Contain" so that our Program Advisory Committees that 
conduct the reviews are able to judge the scientific merit of the 
proposals.  This also helps us to demonstrate that the beam time we 
award goes to the most compelling science.  We can only do this if the 
proposals thoroughly address all of the necessary criteria.

Classified proposals must be submitted in hard copy.  They should be 
submitted to:

Los Alamos National Laboratory
Mail Station 5000
LANSCE User Office c/o MS H803
Los Alamos, NM 87545

or hand carried to TA-53, Bldg. 1, room D108.

*Student Travel Support*
Travel support is available for students to participate in an experiment 
via the STONE (Student Travel Opportunities for Neutron Experiments) 
Program.  For information about this program go to the relevant proposal 
submission site as described previously and click on the "STONE Program" 
link under "Resources and Information."  Instructions about how to apply 
for support from the STONE program are found here.

Should you have any questions or require assistance, please contact the 
LANSCE User Office by e-mail at lansce_users at lanl.gov or by telephone at 
(505) 665-1010.
