Program Advisory Committee


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