SINQ - performance of the new neutron guide system

In a recent open access article in "Neutron News" the performance of the new neutron delivery system after the SINQ upgrade has been described. Neutron flux gain factors between 2 and more than 10 have been measured at the various cold neutron instruments at SINQ.

The paper summarises the achieved results as follows: "The SINQ upgrade at PSI and the improvements in the performance of the neutron guide systems as well as the research instruments was highly successful! With a delay of roughly 2months only due to the corona pandemic lockdown and in full compliance with the financial budget, the SINQ upgrade is a success story. The entire project team is looking forward to a SINQ operation with increased performance at the benefit of the national and international scientific community."
