MacSANS is a new small angle neutron scattering (SANS) beamline currently under construction at the McMaster Nuclear Reactor, a 5 MW research reactor based at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. This beamline is designed to study a broad range of materials, including biological membranes, polymers, superconductors, and novel magnets, by probing structure and magnetism on length scales ranging from ~0.5 to 125 nm. MacSANS will be the only instrument of its kind in Canada, and is scheduled to begin commissioning experiments in the spring of 2019. In this poster we will provide an overview of the instrument design, a description of the major components, and a discussion of potential scientific applications.
