Neutron scattering is used by many scientific disciplines to determine the structure and dynamics of matter. The $1.4 billion Spallation Neutron Source was completed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in May of this year. When it reaches full power, the SNS will provide the most intense pulsed neutron beams in the world for scientific research and industrial development using neutron scattering. With more intense beams and new experimental technologies comes an explosion of neutron scattering data. With the first experiments set to be carried out at the SNS by the end of 2006, researchers are developing a Neutron Science Instrument Gateway to the TeraGrid. This gateway will include tools for analysis, visualization, and instrument simulation, as well as data hosting, retrieval and transfer.
