  • BREAKING – BNC to ease neutron shortage in Europe

    Wed, 19 Jan, 2022

        BNC calls for BNC LENS beam time proposals to accommodate neutron experiments, which have been allocated beam time in any LENS facility's user program but not yet scheduled for any reason - provided that the experiment is technically feasible to accomplish on BNC instruments­. No further refereeing process will be applied. Beside the user experimenter(s) the instrument scientist responsible for the proposal in the other LENS facility is welcome to take part in the experiment. Submission deadline: 22 February, 2022.
  • Season's greetings
