Chipir Neutron Beamline

Chipir Neutron Beamline

  • XYZ Table for sample positioning

The instrument has been designed by in consultation with academic and industry leaders in their field A consortium of Italian experts including the University of Milan-Bicocca, INFN and the CNR is developing fast neutron detector systems and equipment for the sample positions inside the beamline.

Z Stage:
Stroke: 1400 mm.
Resolution: +/- 0.2mm.
Repeatability: +/- 0.2mm.

XY Stages:
Stroke: +/- 250 mm.
Resolution: +/- 0.2mm.
Repeatability: +/- 0.2mm.

  • Neutron Filter Set

The Filter Set is used to move the proper filter under the Neutron Beam.

Attenuators will be used above 10 MeV to allow variable intensity of the fast neutron flux and to allow the thermal and epithermal neutron regimes (0eV-1keV) to be independently selected.
