The National Center for Small-Angle Scattering Research
The National Center for Small-Angle Scattering Research (NCSASR) is a national user-oriented facility dedicated to studying the structure of matter on the scale of tens to hundreds of angstroms (10-8 cm). The center, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through an interagency agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE), was established at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in 1978. It makes state-of-the-art equipment for neutron and x-ray small-angle scattering experiments available to qualified investigators from university, industrial, and other government laboratories.
