Thermal neutron three-axis spectrometer with polarization analysis IN22

IN22 is a three-axis spectrometer (CRG) equipped for full polarization analysis. The option CRYOPAD and a 15 Tesla cryomagnet are optimised for inelastic scattering. The option ZETA provides neutron resonance spin echo (NRSE).

Thermal neutron three-axis spectrometer

IN22 is a CRG instrument operated at the ILL by the CEA-Grenoble DRFMC/SPSMS. It is a thermal neutron three-axis spectrometer especially designed for inelastic neutron scattering under high magnetic fields. It is equipped for both longitudinal and spherical polarisation analysis. The machine is optimized to work with neutrons of incident energies in the range between 5 and 100 meV, thanks to H25 a m=2 supermirror guide.

Applications

  • Study of magnetic and structural excitation spectra on single crystals with neutrons of incident energies in the range 5-100 meV. The neutron Resonance spin echo (NRSE) option is a valuable tool for excitation studies.
  • Longitudinal and spherical polarimetry of inelastic contributions
  • Measurements of inelastic nuclear-magnetic interference terms.
  • Polarized neutron inelastic scattering under high magnetic field (up to 12 T).
  • Measurements of magnetic and structural excitation lifetimes.
  • Experiments requiring a good resolution in wave vector and a low intrinsic neutron background

Instrument layout

Here the instrument is shown in its classical setting for magnetic studies. The neutron beam is polarised and the sample is placed in the high magnetic field of a cryomagnet.
