The elastic diffuse scattering neutron diffractometer mainly conducts single crystal diffraction experiments. The neutron wavelength is from 0.5 to 3.5 . The detector angle spans from -15° to 145°, and thus the Q range is from 0.5 to 23-1. This instrument is typically designed to realize the energy resolution through the correlation chopper, while extracting the pure elastic diffuse scattering signal that only reflects the structural characteristics.
Study the local structure of single crystal samples, defects, short-range order (associated disorder), etc.
Materials science: giant magnetoresistance materials, ferroelectric relaxation materials;
