Title Performance of the new pyrolytic graphite analyser bank on the IRIS spectrometer at ISIS preliminary results
Abstract The pyrolytic graphite (PG) analyser bank on the IRIS high-resolution inelastic spectrometer at ISIS has been upgraded. While the original design utilised a 6 row by 225-column array of 2mm thick (1 cm (sup2)) graphite crystals cooled to 25K, the new design is comprised of 4212 crystal pieces (1mm thick, 18 rows by 234 columns). In addition, the graphite is now cooled close to liquid helium temperature to further improve the sensitivity of the spectrometer. In this report we compare the performance of the newly upgraded instrument to resolution and intensity measurements collected prior to the modifications.
