Vacuum chamber and interior protective elements of the LET spectrometer on the TS2 of the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source

Objective

Supply of a vacuum chamber for the sample environment of a new spectrometer with wide scattering angle.

Results

The complete development of a large-sized vacuum chamber.

vacuum chamber, LET spectrometer, ISIS Neutron and Muon Source

The ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is expanding rapidly with the installing of a second spallation target and new instruments.

One of them is the Low Energy Transfer Spectrometer Chopper, also known as the LET.

IK4-TEKNIKER designed and installed the base structure of the LET spectrometer, a large vacuum tank (10E-6 mbar), semi-circular in shape, with a radius of 4.500 mm and a height of 5.000 mm.

With these measurements the instrument covers a beam scattering of +/- 30º on the vertical plane and 180º on the horizontal plane.
