NeXUS is now soliciting ideas for experiments for the Demonstration phase of our User facility.

As the development of the NSF NeXUS Facility advances toward completion, we seek collaborators from outside of NeXUS to conduct validation and commissioning experiments utilizing the various instruments within the NeXUS System. These experiments may be conducted in-person by visiting researchers or remotely with samples delivered to NeXUS staff.

To review the capabilities of the NeXUS System in detail, visit our About page. Please note – the facility is still in development. Not all experimental capabilities are online yet, but the functional status of our multiple beamlines and end stations is constantly expanding.

We encourage interested researchers to contact a NeXUS faculty member to inquire about system capability related to your research idea. Visit our Faculty page to learn about the research expertise of each of our PIs and to obtain contact information. More general questions can be directed to
