Current topics of interest include:
The primary goal of the group for 2008 is to produce a working prototype wide angle 3He polarizer and have a design suitable for use on the instruments by 2009.
45° Wide Angle Polarization Cell
3He Filling Station
Setup at Asterix
HFIR Cold Guide Hall
SERGIS / MIEZE Development
Neutron Optics / Imaging
This fellowship is for 1-3 years and is for the development of novel neutron instrumentation and instrument components. The call is directed at scientists within 10 years of their PhD from academic, industrial, or government institutions. The plan is to offer one or two Fellowships each year so that there will nominally be four Fellows here at any given time.
Dr. Thorwald van VuureORNL Instrument Development FellowNovel Concepts for Neutron Instrumentation
Dr. Thorwald van Vuure is the first Instrument Development Fellow. He is working on a new detector concept which combines inclined layers of solid thermal-neutron converters with gas electron multipliers for thermal-neutron detection to achieve a higher data rate than is currently available.
