Neutron Scattering

WPN is the neutron scattering unit of WP. Based at the outstation at the Maier Leibniz Zentrum in Garching near Munich, this group operates the materials science diffractometer StressSpec, the small angle machine SANS-1 (both in cooperation with the TU Munich) and the horizontal reflectometer REFSANS. This instrumental suite covers the characterisation needs of a broad community for both bulk materials and surfaces. In addition to these large instruments, our Materials Science Laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art setups (diffractometer, calorimeter, optical microscopy…) is available for sample preparation and pre-characterisation.
