Abstract:

The project will research a new generation of optic for focusing cold neutrons using tapered capillary optics. The success of the program will result in neutron beam probes with unprecedented spatial resolution and detection limits for small sample volumes. The individuals involved are the world leaders in neutron focusing capillary optics, having achieved better than an order-of-magnitude improvement in lateral spatial resolution and neutron current density using an earlier type of capillary optic. With the proposed improved tapered capillary optic technology, we expect to obtain an additional 10x improvement in spatial resolution and improve upon previous neutron intensity gains.
