Program Advisory Committee


The Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering Program Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the Leader of the facility concerning the allocation of neutron beam time, and the Director of the National Deuteration Facility concerning use of its facilities.


The committee examines not only scientific merits (comments provided by external referees online), but also technical and safety aspects of the beam-time requests.


Although assessment is driven by the scientific merit of the proposal, the development of new users and new research areas are also be taken into account.
