Title:
From BATS to MIRACLES: Paving the way for European high-resolution neutron spectroscopy
Duration:
01/10/2022 to 30/09/2025
Abstract / short description:
High-resolution neutron backscattering spectroscopy benefits from substantial technical
progress in recent years enabling new types of experiments. These include for instance
measurements accessing hierarchically superimposed diffusive motions on the nanosecond
time and nanometer length scale in a wide range of complex materials and fluids. This project
aims to add new possibilities and strengthen the European landscape of neutron backscattering
spectroscopy by advancing the backscattering analyzer and detection capabilities at low
scattering angles, thus uniquely combining dynamics and structure. These new capabilities will
be established with demonstration experiments on the spectrometer IN16B/BATS@ILL and will
enable backscattering spectroscopy in the widest possible range in energy and momentum
transfer, serving as a testbed for concepts relevant for MIRACLES@ESS. It will moreover
enhance the synergy between both instrument teams at ILL and ESS.
