What’s New @ CNMS
The CNMS is ever changing and growing to meet the evolving needs of our user community, including dramatic changes to the physical landscape in and around the facility, and with the addition of new capabilities and staff. Here are just a few highlights of what’s new at the CNMS since last year’s user meeting:
1. Construction of the new Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences (JINS) is nearly complete (opening July 2010). This will feature additional office space, a 50-person conference room, and 8 additional laboratories including new specimen preparation areas for SNS/CNMS users.
2. A new on-site cafeteria has opened and been in operation since January 1, 2010 on the ground floor of the SNS.
3. Additional laboratory space supporting the NRL will be available in the new 2nd floor build-out of the SNS.
4. Ground has broken and construction commenced on the new ORNL Guest House. It is expected to be fully operational in December 2010. For up-to-date information on the progress of this development, click here.
