Measurements with polarized or unpolarized neutrons in the white beam time-of-flight mode and optionally in the θ-2θ mode can be performed. Most of the components are riding on an 8m optical bench so that the chopper - detector distance can be varied in order to give an optimal sample illumination and resolution. The scattering plane is oriented vertically. The inclination angle and thereby the accessible q-range is adjusted by tilting a deflection mirror and/or the sample.
General descriptions on the instrument and its performance can be found in the following papers:
