European Spallation Source
The European Spallation Source is one of the most significant science and technology infrastructure projects being built today. The facility design and construction include the most powerful linear proton accelerator ever built, a five-tonne, helium-cooled tungsten target wheel, 15 state-of-the-art neutron instruments, a suite of laboratories, and a supercomputing data management and software development center. In the context of its history and future as a scientific organisation, it is more than the sum of its parts. It is a brand new Big Science organization, built from the ground up.
Europe’s need for an advanced, high-power neutron spallation source was articulated 20 years ago. The European Spallation Source is a pan-European project with 13 European nations as members, including the host nations Sweden and Denmark. ESS will offer neutron beams of unparalleled brightness for cold neutrons, delivering more neutrons than the world’s most powerful reactor-based neutron sources today, and with higher peak intensity than any other spallation source.
The ESS facility is under construction in Lund, while the ESS Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) is located in Copenhagen. Around two to three thousand visiting researchers will carry out experiments at ESS each year. Most of the users will be based at European universities and institutes, others within the industry.
