Plasma processing technique takes SNS accelerator to new energy highs

Oak Ridge TN (SPX) Mar 08, 2016

A novel technique known as in-situ plasma processing is helping scientists get more neutrons and better data for their experiments at the Spallation Neutron Source at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

“Plasma cleaning is a well-known technique in electrostatics,” said ORNL’s Research Accelerator Division Director Kevin Jones, “but it has not been applied before to s —> Read More
