D11 - Lowest momentum transfer & lowest background small-angle neutron scattering instrument

D11 is the archetype of a long, pinhole geometry instrument for small angle neutron scattering (SANS), designed for the study of large scale structures in soft matter systems, chemistry, biology, solid state physics and materials science. This instrument was upgraded as a part of the ILL’s Millennium Programme.
