Title NIMROD: The Near and InterMediate Range Order Diffractometer of the ISIS second target station
Abstract NIMROD is the Near and InterMediate Range Order Diffractometer of the ISIS second target station. Its design is optimised for structural studies of disordered materials and liquids on a continuous length scale that extends from the atomic, upwards of 30nm, whilst maintaining sub-atomic distance resolution. This capability is achieved by matching a low and wider angle array of high efficiency neutron scintillation detectors to the broad band-pass radiation delivered by a hybrid liquid water and liquid hydrogen neutron moderator assembly. The capabilities of the instrument bridge the gap between conventional small angle neutron scattering and wide angle diffraction through the use of a common calibration procedure for the entire length scale. This allows the instrument to obtain information on nano-scale systems and processes that is quantitatively linked to the local atomic and molecular order of the materials under investigation.
