Beam time allocations for the second half of 2017

The Program Advisory Committee, chaired by A/Prof Tracy Rushmer (Macquarie University), met last week to assess the scientific merit of beam-time and deuteration proposals submitted for time between July and December 2017.

190 cold- and thermal-neutron experiments were recommended for approval, with beam time allocations as follows: 64 days on ECHIDNA, 69 on WOMBAT, 70 on KOALA, 88 on KOWARI, 54 on TAIPAN, 91 on PLATYPUS, 102 on QUOKKA, 78 on DINGO, 69 on PELICAN, 64 on KOOKABURRA, 69 on BILBY, 44 on EMU and 74 on SIKA. The variation is primarily due to time set aside for proprietary work, pre-approved programs of research from previous proposal rounds and time set aside for the mail-in service on ECHIDNA
