The crystal analyser spectrometer PRISMA has proven to be particularly successful at surveying extended areas of (kappa,epsilon) space, efficiently collecting high-quality inelastic and critical scattering data sets from single-crystal samples. In the inelastic mode, mechanical constraints upon the 16 analyser-detector arms limit the final energy to E-f > 12 meV. To overcome this constraint, a novel double-crystal analyser system has recently been installed on the PRISMA spectrometer. Neutrons scattered from the sample are analysed by five groups of paired pyrolytic graphite analysers allowing final energies 2.25 meV < E-f < 14 meV to be easily obtained, enabling measurements at low kappa to be made with good resolution.

Abstract

The crystal analyser spectrometer PRISMA has proven to be particularly successful at surveying extended areas of (kappa,epsilon) space, efficiently collecting high-quality inelastic and critical scattering data sets from single-crystal samples. In the inelastic mode, mechanical constraints upon the 16 analyser-detector arms limit the final energy to E-f > 12 meV. To overcome this constraint, a novel double-crystal analyser system has recently been installed on the PRISMA spectrometer. Neutrons scattered from the sample are analysed by five groups of paired pyrolytic graphite analysers allowing final energies 2.25 meV < E-f < 14 meV to be easily obtained, enabling measurements at low kappa to be made with good resolution.
