Excerpt: Most facilities for neutron scattering experiments are based at nuclear reactors, but the. Manuel Lujan, Jr. Neutron Scattering Center (or, less formally, LANSCE) is one of a new generation of neutron sources that has become available during the past decade- those based at proton accelerators. The new accelerator sources have several advantages. First, an accelerator source does not involve nuclear fission and therefore poses no threat of runaway operation that might lead to dispersal of hazardous radiation. Safe operation of a reactor requires complex control mechanisms. and, as evidenced by the Chernobyl disaster. accidents involving nuclear reactors can cause widespread harm to people and the environment. The cost of reducing the probability of’ such accidents to a level society finds acceptable is rapidly becoming prohibitive.
