Neutron Reflectometry Detectors
Lund University, https://www.lu.se/
ESS will be the most powerful neutron source in the world. The unprecedented neutron flux has made the development of new detector technology necessary. In particular, Neutron Reflectometry is facing a huge challenge: the required instantaneous rate capability is on the order of one thousand times higher than what current state-of-the-art detectors can achieve, and the spatial resolution needs to improve fourfold.
After three years of intense development, the Multi-Blade detector fulfills all the above requirements and has been accepted to be the detector used on the two reflectometry instruments built at ESS: ESTIA and FREIA.
