Beamline

Energy Range

0-800 MeV matched to atmospheric spectrum

Flux

1x107n/cm2/sec above 10MeV

Modes

Characterized: 70x70mm2

Future development: Collimated  beam (down to few cm2)and 'Flood beam' (up to 1000x1000mm2)

Filters

Cadmium filters are available to remove thermal neutrons from the incident beam

Collimator

Fully variable collimation from 1x1mm2 to 250x250mm2
Multiple Selection of beam size from 250x250mm2 to 1000x1000mm2

 

DUT Experimental
Area

Room

Shielded  open space allowing flexible use for DUT requirements
Camera and intercom link to data collection area and Pod

Sample Positions

Two main sample positions

Cabling

Two ‘patch panels’ for each position providing fixed multiple links to data collection areas (e.g. CAT5, USB, SHV..)
user accessible cable runs to data collection area
Ethernet (to data collection room and internet)

Sample Position 1 (Front position)

Flexible optical table breadboard to allow easy positioning of DUTs. Automated computer controlled positioning available.

Sample Position 2 (Back position)

XYZ fully automated positioning table about to take 500kg load.(Z allows  1400mm movement; X and Y allow +/- 250mm movement)
EU and UK Power sockets on table

Power

Multiple EU, UK and 110V US supply

Equipment

Variety of power supplies, oscilloscopes, HV supplies, voltmeters available and additional needs on request
USB and GPIB communication equipment

 

Data Collection
Area

Room

EMC shielded room with air conditioning

Work stations

Three independent workstations with multiple provision of power, USB, ethernet ect.

Cabling

Two ‘patch panels’ for each position providing fixed multiple links to DUT experimental area (e.g. CAT5, USB, SHV..)

Power

Multiple EU and UK power

Dosimetry and TOF information

Dosimetry  data collection and provision of main ISIS timing signals and flux information

 

If one needs extra cables, it is possible to lay them down under the floor. One needs about 25 m of cables
