ECHO is the ultra small angle scattering set-up on the 2 axes diffractometer MORPHEUS. It was developed and set up in cooperation with E. Jericha and M. Villa from the Atominstitut Wien, Austria.
The sample-table is rather flexible and it is designed to hold the (not to heavy) sample-environments of the instruments SANS I and SANS II.
ECHO will be operated in time-sharing mode with reflectometry and single crystal set-ups. Yet, ECHO is not accessible via the normal SINQ proposal procedure because it is still in a test state. To obtain beam time please directly contact the instrument responsible.
