Materials scientists, condensed matter physicists, analytical chemists and biologists are only part of a large and growing community of researchers who need access to subthermal, or “cold,” neutrons and the various instruments that use these very‐lowenergy particles. For the past two decades, many US researchers have had to travel to Western Europe for that access, but now, with the opening of the new, $30‐million Cold Neutron Research Facility at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland, intense beams of long‐wavelength neutrons are available closer to home.
