Vesuvio is a unique neutron spectrometer, which uses the high intensity of neutrons in the eV energy range (epi-thermal neutrons) to mass-separate the spectra into a collection of nuclear momentum distributions.

​​​​​​​​​​​​The VESUVIO detectors in front (d-m) and backscattering (c), incident (a) and transmitted (b) monitors. The sample is the blue slab at the centre.
 

For each mass in the sample, a measured distribution of nuclear momenta can be used to calculate zero-point energies and effective potentials felt by nuclei in a variety of condensed matter systems.

Moreover, Vesuvio allows the concurrent measure of i) H/D uptake levels; ii) sample transmission and scattering cross section in a broad energy range; iii) diffraction spectra; iv) neutron-gamma resonances.

Science on Vesuvio stretches from fundamental physics to chemistry and materi​als science.
