DREAM-a versatile powder diffractometer at the ESS
Forskningsoutput: Tidskriftsbidrag › Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift
The instrument DREAM, in construction at the long pulse European Spallation Source (ESS), is a new type of neutron time-of-flight powder diffractometer, which utilizes additional choppers to meet the typical high resolution requests. Pulses will be of symmetric shape and their width can be varied from 10 μs to 1 ms, providing an unprecedented flexibility from highest to low resolution with optimized intensities at the superior brightness of the 5 MW source. The design is driven particularly by the needs and challenges for small and complex samples, large unit cell materials, thermoelectric cage structures or metal-organic framework structures, multiphase battery materials and complex magnetic structures. Therefore, the chosen wavelength bandwidth of 3.7 Å may cover well the peak intensities of the thermal and cold moderator used simultaneously and provides a sufficient Q (and d) range for obtaining diffraction patterns in a single setting. VITESS simulations show a performance that is about two orders of magnitude higher than current best instruments.
