neutron source in the world. These unique facilities will provide
opportunities for up to 2000 researchers each year from universities,
national labs, and industry for basic and applied research and
technology development in the fields of materials science, magnetic
materials, polymers and complex fluids, chemistry, and biology. Funded
by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science, SNS began
operations in June 2006.
