Polarized Inelastic Neutron Scattering (PINS) WorkshopHYSPEC IDT Meeting
Motivation & Plans
HYSPEC (short for HYbrid SPECtrometer) is an inelastic instrument under construction at the Spallation Neutron Source. One of its unique features will be the capability to perform experiments with fully polarized neutron beams. In conjunction with an Instrument Development Team (IDT) meeting on April 7, 2006 we plan to hold a workshop on Polarized Inelastic Neutron Scattering (PINS) to discuss methods of analyzing the neutron spins. HYSPEC is baselined to use supermirror benders, but He3 transmission polarizer's are also under consideration. The workshop will last 1-1/2 days and feature experts on both techniques of polarization analysis. Attendance will be limited in order to promote discussion. Following the PINS workshop there will be an IDT meeting where the progress on HYSPEC's design and construction will be given.
Hybrid Spectrometer for the SNS - HYSPEC, an acronym for Hybrid Spectrometer, is a unique instrument whose concept combines advantages of the time-of-flight (TOF) technique which is traditionally used at the pulsed sources with those of crystal spectrometers which use continuous neutron beams. It is developed as a collaborative effort of the Instrument Development Team (IDT) composed of scientists from the leading US Universities and National Laboratories and an international group of prominent neutron scattering experts, aimed at designing and building a conceptually new high-flux inelastic neutron spectrometer at the pulsed Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge. This effort was initiated by the physicists from the Neutron Scattering Group (and former Center for Neutron Science) at Brookhaven National Laboratory and is now a collaborative effort between BNL and SNS.
