10. October 2013 - 11. October 2013 Single Crystal Spectroscopy: Multi-TAS or TOF?

Murnau, Germany


An international workshop organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science entitled

Single Crystal Spectroscopy:
Multi-TAS or TOF?

will be held at the Hotel Ludwig in Murnau, Germany. The workshop will start in the afternoon of 10th October and will end on 11th October.

The workshop is a satellite workshop to the JCNS-Workshop on magnetism and correl ated electron systems (7 – 10 October, 2013, Tutzing, Germany).

Three-axis spectrometers are recognized as the instruments of choice for single crystal spectroscopy. Permanent improvements and upgrades using modern neutron optics and technology guarantee their success.
With recent upgrades several three-axis spectrometers install or develop optional multiplexing secondary spectrometers. Getting more information in one scan it is expected to measure faster and more efficient.
Also single crystal TOF technique is improved and gives hope to be a powerful complement – or alternative – to TAS spectroscopy.

In this workshop we would like to discuss necessities, possibilities and constraints of existing and upcoming multi-TAS systems. As they will bridge the gap between standard TAS-technique and large detector instruments we would like to distinguish from single crystal TOF methods and learn from their experiences. One major objective will be the status and request on software for planning measurements and analyzing data and their directions.
