Condensed matter research at the Los Alamos pulsed neutron source (WNR)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The experimental program at the WNR in condensed matter research at present is aimed principally at utilizing the high epithermal neutron flux available at a spallation neutron source. Interesting new results have been obtained in several areas including hydrogen vibrations in metals, chemical vibrational spectroscopy and the structure of liquids. For example, extensive vibrational spectra were obtained by hydrogen in Nb which could be described in terms of a three-dimensional localized anharmonic oscillator, deuterium substitution methods were used to determine the variation with O-O distance of the hydrogen bending mode frequency in extremely short intramolecular hydrogen bonds, and model-independent partial structure factors were determine for liquid water.
