Abstract
We address a need of the neutron user community by creating a minimum viable prototype of the only high-throughput hydrostatic pressure small angle neutron scattering sample environment (HTHP-SANS-SE). Our HTHP-SANS-SE will greatly improve the ease of use and reliability of measurements under extreme environments, thereby increasing throughput on the beamline and expanding feasibility. Current HP-SANS cells are difficult to load/unload and require significant sample amounts, often prohibitive for soft matter users. The HTHP-SANS-SE will b controlled via existing data acquisition software (NICE) and enable queueing multiple cells compatible with standard sample block environments, to optimize the use of beamtime while greatly simplifying support required from beamtime scientists.
