Diffuse Scattering Spectrometer

D7 - Diffuse Scattering Spectrometer

 D7 has been dismantled.  The new permanently-polarized diffuse scattering spectrometer D007 will deliver its first neutrons in 2024.

The diffuse scattering spectrometer D7 is a general purpose neutron polarisation analysis spectrometer, designed to study nuclear and magnetic short range ordered materials and magnetic defect structures.


  • Magnetic short range order in frustrated magnets and spin-glasses
  • Studies of non-collinear ferromagnetism
  • Extended magnetic defects in antiferromagnetic materials
  • Studies of hydrogen motion
  • Separation of collective and single particle excitations
