Title Accelerator-based neutron sources for condensed matter research - Cockcroft Institute Lectures 2015
Contributors
Abstract These lectures provide a self-contained introduction to the use of accelerator-based neutron sources for condensed matter research. In their present form, they were first given in 2015 as part of the Applications of Accelerators graduate course at the Cockcroft Institute of Accelerator Science & Technology, Daresbury Laboratory, United Kingdom. They also build on previous teaching materials prepared for the graduate curriculum of the The John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science at the University of Oxford. The first lecture is primarily concerned with neutron production. It sets the scene by reviewing the merits and strengths of neutron-scattering as a condensed-matter probe. It then explains the reasons behind the increasing use of accelerator technology to this and other ends, including muon production. A number of recent and ongoing projects around the globe to develop both small- and large-scale accelerator-driven neutron facilities are described, alongside emerging concepts aimed at the optimisation of neutron production for specific scientific applications. The second lecture provides an overview of condensed matter research with neutrons across a number of disciplines in science and engineering. Key concepts are illustrated using recent case studies primarily carried out at the ISIS Pulsed Neutron & Muon Source, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, United Kingdom. We close by presenting a number of opportunities on the horizon, in order to address emerging research trends in condensed matter and stimulate further work in the field of accelerator science.
