Technical Resources

Polymer Information Databases

CAMPUS Database
A large database of material properties for commercial polymer grades, collected from online datasheets.  This data is focused toward resins sold by material producers.

A property database for polymeric material design, with data mainly from academic resources.  A login is required, but it is free to register.  PoLyInfo is supported through the government of Japan through NIMS, National Institute for Materials Science. 

Polymers Database (Login required) 
A property database maintained by Wiley in support of their book, Polymers: A Property Database. Data within the book is searchable online through various different methods.

User Facilities

NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR)
The NCNR focus is on providing neutron measurement capabilities to the U.S. research community.  Instruments are available for through a biannual call for proposals.  Proposals are usually due March and November, but please check the webpage for details.  nSoft, which focuses on neutron-based measurements for manufacturing of soft materials, is a private/public consortium had polymer specific instruments with dedicated beam time.

Neutron Sciences at ORNL
The neutron source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has two calls for proposals per year.  Access to the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) characterization facilities is also available.  The spring 2018 proposal call will close February 21, 2018, for experiments anticipated to run at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) from June to December 2018, and at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) from July to December 2018.  A description of Department of Energy User Labs can be found at the DOE webpage.
