The discovery of neutrino oscillation has opened a rich of field of physics at the intersection of particle, nuclear, and astrophysics. Experiments have measured the mixing of the three active neutrinos states and determined the associated oscillation parameters. Yet many neutrino properties are unknown. Future experiments will provide precision measurements of the properties and interactions of neutrinos and probe for signs of new physics.

The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) of Oak Ridge National Laboratory(ORNL) are two very powerful neutrino sources that open new physics opportunities. I will
review some of the current activities taking place at ORNL in clu ding The Precision Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment, or PROSPECT which is soon to be de ployed at HFIR and will give a brief up date on the Majorana Demonstrator, an experiment taking place at the Homes take Mine in South Dakota, whose purpose is to take a first step toward observing neutrino less double-beta decayin germanium-76.
