The Spallation Neutron Source Project

When the Department of Energy (DOE) set out in the 1990s to develop a neutron scattering research facility that was ten times more powerful than the state of the art, the concept for the project that it chose was as ambitious as the scientific capability it sought to deliver.  The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) Project called for unprecedented collaboration among six national laboratories as well as significant research and development that would push the existing boundaries of proton particle accelerator technology.
