  • Call for Rapid Access Proposals for COVID-19 Research Using Neutron Scattering Resources (
  • With the continuing spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences neutron sources will provide remote rapid access to support research into the COVID-19 virus and the search for effective diagnostics and therapies. Beamlines that will be made available at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, include neutron macromolecular crystallography, small angle scattering, reflectometry, spectroscopy and imaging beamlines.

    SNS and HFIR beamlines are supported by staff with expertise in neutron structural biology, biophysics, chemistry, and nanoscale materials science and engineering and could be used to help to develop physical, chemical and environmental controls to virus transmission, infection and replication, and guide in the development of new diagnostics and therapeutics of disease. 

    Researchers who would like to use these resources should submit a short rapid access proposal, outlining experiment aims and scope, at A facility scientist will contact you regarding your proposal within 2 days. Scientific and technical questions should be sent to Dean Myles at

  • The NSF Convergence Accelerator recently announced the release of the 2020 NSF Convergence Accelerator Phase I and II Program Solicitation (NSF 20-565).  The 2020 NSF Convergence Accelerator consists of the following two tracks: Quantum Technology (Track C) and AI-Driven Innovation via Data and Model Sharing (Track D).  The NSF Convergence Accelerator also announced the recent release of a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL): Request for Information (RFI) on Future Topics for the NSF Convergence Accelerator and Call for Future Topics Conference Proposals (DCL 20-061).  Click here for more information.
