The Present Status of the Low Energy Neutron Source


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.
