The scattering chamber has an inner diameter of 2.6 meters, a total length of 12.75 meters and a total weight of 22 tons. VSANS research group alongside the manufacturing partner spent 12 months designing and manufacturing this key component of the instrument.
Funded by Department of Science and Technology of Guangdong Province, VSANS began construction in November 2019 and will be completed by the end of 2022. VSANS is expected play a significant role in research areas including condensed matter physics, life science and materials science, as well as in industrial applications.
