The Present Status of the Low Energy Neutron Source

Abstract

The Low Energy Neutron Source (LENS) at Indiana University produced its first neutrons in late 2004, and has been engaged in a series of facility upgrades since that time. Among the important developments over the past two years have been the commissioning of klystron-based RF systems, the demonstration of beam peak proton beam currents of more than 20mA, and the low-power operation of a methane moderator at temperatures below 10K. In this talk we will review the present status of the facility and review some of these recent results along with a few of the milestones anticipated for the construction phase over the next 10 months.
