Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) is aimed at promoting materials science and life science using the world highest intensity pulsed neutron and muon beams which are produced using 3-GeV protons with a current of 333micro-amps and a repetition rate of 25 Hz.
The neutron and muon production run cycles for the 2009A user program ended on December 17, 2009, after which the 2009B user program is under progress using seven neutron instruments and one muon instrument. The neutron source and the muon target are operated with the proton beam of 120 kW since the run cycle in November, 2009. Call for proposals for the user program for the 2010 term was closed on January, 2010.
