Hilger, A.; Kardjilov, N.; Manke, I.; Zendler, Carolin LU ; Lieutenant, K.; Habicht, K.; Banhart, J. and Strobl, Markus LU (2015) In Optics Express 23(1). p.301-311
Abstract
A neutron transport system for the planned imaging instrument ODIN at the future European Spallation Source (ESS) based on neutron optical components was designed and optimized. Different ways of prompt pulse suppression were studied. The spectral performance of the optimal neutron guide configuration is presented. In addition, the influence of the gaps in the guide system needed for the required chopper configuration was investigated. Given that the requirements for an imaging instrument located on a long guide system and hosting a complex chopper system are extremely demanding in terms of spectral and divergence needs, this study can be beneficial for a wide range of instruments in various ways.
