The Industrial Applications Program assists industry with all aspects of neutron scattering experiments – from experiment design to measurements to data interpretation - at both the SNS and HFIR. Several access modes that accommodate time-critical needs to non-time-sensitive collaboration are available to industry. Time-critical rapid access requests for beam time can be made at any time and are considered outside the normal academic peer-reviewed proposal process.
Industrial users may access neutron facilities under ORNL's standard user agreement https://www.ornl.gov/partnerships/user-agreement.
There is no cost for using neutrons via the GUP for non-proprietary publishable work. Procedures and contractual mechanisms are established for full cost recovery access for both proprietary and non-proprietary work. These include:
