A new graphite-analyser detector bank and associated data-acquisition electronics were installed and commissioned on IRIS.

This upgrade has led to significant improvements in instrument performance including much-improved short- and long-term stability, a tenfold reduction in detector sensitivity to cryomagnet operation on OSIRIS, and a twofold increase in detected count rate.
