  • Information Request from Centers

  • The Source:

  • Brief description of the existing facility

  • Performance of the source: 5 year trends of availability, reliability, user schedules, operational data

  • Instruments:

  • Brief description of each instrument, research community served by each instrument, layout of facility, ranking of each instrument and beamline

  • Reliability of each instrument

  • Availability of beam time to different groups for each spectrometer, e.g., external users, instrument scientists, director’s discretion and other internal usage (including calibration and commissioning)

  • User demand: days requested and delivered on each instrument by scientific field, i.e., Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, Other.

  • Past 5 years: new investments, upgrades and maintenance in instruments

  • Support facilities:

  • oAvailability and planned facilities, e.g., sample preparation, computer analysis, etc.

  • Staff:

  • Size of staff and assignments, give a breakdown of the staff according to areas, i.e., accelerator, scientists, technicians, computing

  • Assessment of quality of the staff.

  • Users:

  • Assessment of quality of user research program: For the last 5-years: list 20 top publications sorted according to research area, citation index and impact; and list of awards given to users and staff

  • Summary of source and level of outside support for users

  • Distribution of users according to fields

  • User proposal review process and allocation of user time: users/year, experiments per year, and proposals per year.

  • Measure of user satisfaction

  • How is your facility increasing the neutron user base in the U.S.? What is being done to stimulate new science areas and broaden the user community?

Slide6 l.jpg

  • Impact:

  • The 20 most important papers over the past 5 years based on work done at your facility

  • List of all publications in last 5 years: Publications in refereed journals separated by work performed (i) at the facility by users or staff and (ii) at other facilities by staff; publications in conference proceedings, and identify the field and the instrument used.

  • Plenary lectures and major awards.

  • Data on publications per year with citations and papers per user. (This is only for papers published using the facility.)

  • Cost:

  • Operational, maintenance, upgrades and investment costs for the facility

  • Cost per paper

  • Cost per delivered beam day

  • DoE milestones and performance assessment:

  • Outside review reports

  • The Future:

  • Role for the facility for next few years, i.e, up to when SNS comes on line; upgrades that have been approved; and plans for new instrumentation

  • Plans to increase the neutron user base in the US

  • Vision and goals for the facility after SNS
