Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 27)


The construction of a reentrant cold source at the Brookhaven High Flux Beam Reactor over the past few years, and its sucessful operation since 1981, have made available an intense long wavelength neutron source that is ideally suited for the investigation of complex biological structures (1). This development and the more recent increase in reactor power to 60 MW encouraged the construction of a new small-angle neutron diffraction instrument.
