Description

The Lujan Neutron Scattering Center (Lujan Center) at Los Alamos National Laboratory is an intense pulsed neutrons source operating at a power level of 80 -100 kW. The Lujan Center features instruments for the measurement of atomic and magnetic structure, high-pressure and high-temperature diffraction, strain and texture, and surface reflectivity for the study of magnetic, polymer and biological materials. A single crystal machine for protein structure studies is also part of the instrument suite. The facility has a long history and extensive experience in handling actinide samples. The Lujan Center is part of the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), which is comprised of a 800-MeV proton linear accelerator, a proton storage ring, and neutron production targets delivering neutrons to the Lujan Center and the Weapons Neutron Research facility for national security and civilian research.
