Current topics of interest include:

  • Polarization (3He polarization techniques, supermirrorpolarizers, magnetic spin filters)

  • Instrument Concepts: SESAME, SERGIS, MIEZE, Imaging, TISANE, and “wavelength multiplication”

  • Neutron Optics (focusing mirrors, refractive and magnetic lenses, new monochromator/analyzer materials, and high speed adaptive optics for pulse/probe applications)

  • Neutron Transport (guides, magnetic beam confinement)


Polarization lab

Polarization Lab

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.

Instrument development fellowship program

Instrument Development Fellowship Program

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.
