NIST to construct $81M neutron research center

Abstract:
A federal neutron research center is growing by a third so it can better study tinier particles.

The Center for Neutron Research, which anchors one end of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Gaithersburg campus, plans to start construction early next year on nearly 50,000 square feet of new office, conference room and scientific space to intensify its study of the subatomic particles.

The federally funded project, anticipated to cost at least $81 million during the next five years, is aimed at taking nanoscience into unexplored territory at a neutron center already known for being one of the nation's best. The center will add five more to its 15 massive neutron-probing machines, doubling in floor space to house them and allowing the 2,300 scientists who use its facility each year to study nanoparticles in more detail than ever before -- the equivalent of using the Hubble Telescope rather than a store-bought one to examine the stars.
