Energy dependence of the flux and elastic resolution for the ARCS neutron spectrometer

Flux and elastic resolution for a wide range of instrument conditions were measured and modeled for the ARCS chopper spectrometer.

This work provides a key reference for users of the ARCS instrument, making it easier for users to plan for their experiments. The online interactive resolution/flux plots make it much easier for ARCS users to take educated tradeoff between resolution and flux, while taking their experiment requirements into account.

Research details:

  • A series of vanadium calibration measurements for a wide range of incident energies were performed for the ARCS direct geometry chopper spectrometer
  • Analytical models were able to reproduce most of the general trends observed in the measurements.
  • MCViNE simulations were used to confirm modeling results when experimental results are not reliable for direct measurement of resolution
