Diffuse Scattering Spectrometer

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

A general view of the instrument

D7 is a cold neutron multidetector diffractometer with full XYZ polarisation analysis. This allows the unambiguous separation of nuclear, magnetic and nuclear-spin-incoherent scattering contributions simultaneously over a large range of scattering vector Q, and is therefore ideal in the study of diffuse scattering from disordered magnetic materials.

It is also a time-focusing time-of-flight spectrometer with polarisation analysis.
