Neutron scattering device dedicated to neutron holography experiments is described. The device is operating at a constant wavelength prepared by a double focusing monochromator. It is equipped by highly efficient shielding, proper collimator, Eulerian cradle, monitor detector, gamma-ray, and neutron detectors as well. Relevant software serves as control for the measurement and data collection. The harmonized application of the components enumerated above makes our device extremely efficient and unparalleled. Two atomic resolution neutron holographic experiments carried out illustrate the efficiency and power of the instrument.

    We have tested the concept of a high-resolution x-ray monochromator with a refractive collimator as an optical element. Two options were examined, where the refractive collimator was included either instead of, or in addition to the first crystal of the high-resolution monochromator. The first...

    A white beam collimator has been built to increase the efficiency of a diamond high-heat-load premonochromator. The collimator is composed of a water-cooled beryllium compound refractive lens. We demonstrate a 30% increase in spectral flux of the diamond premonochromator (at 22.6 keV) by using...

    The design and operation of beamline X-11A at the NSLS is described. It employs a unique optical design using a two/four crystal monochromator and a SiC collimating mirror. In either the two- or four-crystal mode a sagittal focusing crystal allows collection of up to 5 mrad of horizontal...

    The new thermal triple-axis spectrometer at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) is located at the BT-7 beam port. The 165 mm diameter reactor beam is equipped with a selection of Söller collimators, beam-limiters, and a pyrolytic graphite (PG) filter to tailor the beam for the dual...

    Pyrolytic graphite (PG) has become nearly indispensable in neutron spectroscopy. Since the integrated reflectivity of the monochromatic neutrons from PG crystals cut along its c-axis is high within a wavelength band from 0.1 nm up to 0.65 nm. The monochromatic features of PG crystal is detailed...
