Polaris science

Research you can do with the instrument

The uniquely high flux of epithermal neutrons available at a spallation neutron source enable extremely short d-spacings, as low as 0.3 Å, to be measured on POLARIS. The very wide Q range thus accessed is invaluable in the refinement of site occupancies and temperature factors in disordered materials, such as solid electrolytes and high Tc superconductors, using powder diffraction data.


  • Site occupancies and thermal vibration parameters
  • Time-resolved measurements
  • Diffraction studies of very small sample volumes
  • Samples at high pressures
  • Ab initio structure determination
  • Studies of magnetic ordering
