Massive dynamic q-range small-angle diffractometer

The sample area of D33

D33 was not yet commissioned when this photo was shot (July 2012) but neutron tests had already started. The sample table of D33 allows positioning in the vertical and horizontal direction and rotation in the horizontal plane as well as a goniometer for tilts in the vertical plane. The stages are dimensioned to carry weights up to 500 kg. The entire sample table and sample environments can be placed along the 2.8 m length between the collimation and the detector tank window.
