Approaches to instrument design at pulsed neutron sources

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A number of tools are used in the design of scattering instruments for pulsed neutron sources. Initial design is based largely on simple analytical calculations. More complicated analytical calculations and Monte Carlo simulations come into play as the design is optimized to maximize the data rate and to improve the data quality. Examples are used to illustrate the relative roles of these different computational tools. Areas are also identified where appropriate computational tools are currently lacking.
