Title FIRES : a novel backscattering spectrometer for ISIS
Abstract FIRES is a novel neutron spectrometer designed to enlarge by one order of magnitude the spectral window presently available at the ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Source. The extension to microelectron-volt resolution or, in the domain, to nanosecond relaxation timescales will open up new vistas in a wide range of research areas including biology and soft matter, energy conversion and storage, chemical analysis, and quantum magnetism. With a unique combination of high spectral resolution and wide dynamic range, FIRES provides a step-change in low-energy spectroscopy at ISIS and beyond. Three potential sites have been identified to position this new spectrometer. The preferred option is a beamline at the south side of Target Station 1. This report explores in detail why and how FIRES is to become an integral part of the ISIS instrumentation suite.
