5 The Blue Ribbon Commissions final report to the Secretary of Energy noted that INLs ATR user facility exemplified the kind of RDD infrastructure that could yield particularly high returns on public investment. Last year the ATR User Facility opened the Microscopy and Characterization Suite MaCS in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Energy Studies at INL. Last year also marked the first two experiments irradiated in the newly installed ATR Hydraulic Shuttle Irradiation System HSIS. The system allows sample irradiation periods to be tailored to match experiment specifications irradiation no longer has to align with ATR operating and outage schedules. This flexibility allows for experiments as short as minutes and opens up new research opportunities at ATR for DOE research university experiments and industry participants. Light Water Reactor Sustainability INL and the Electric Power Research Institute EPRI are leading implementation of DOEs Light Water Reactor Sustainability LWRS program. Last year INL engaged utilities and vendors for advanced sensors and instrumentation work under the program. INL also is host and organizer of a workshop for the LWRS Advanced Instrumentation Information Control IIC Working Group. The workshops objectives include updating the IIC vision document reviewing results of pilot projects previewing the planned FY 2012 research activities and touring INL simulation capabilities. The MaCS lab enables national users to access high-end analytical equipment including an atom probe a transmission electron microscope a focused ion beam system a Raman spectrometer and an atomic force microscope.
