Cold Neutron Chopper Spectrometer (CNCS)

     The Cold Neutron Chopper Spectrometer is a multi-chopper spectrometer designed to provide both high energy and Q resolution at low incident energies (2-50 meV). These capabilities will allow the instrument to address a broad variety of scientific problems in areas as diverse as biomaterials, polymers, cements, magnetic system, geological systems, and quantum liquids. These topics are at the forefront in many different areas such as condensed matter physics, materials science, chemistry, biology and environmental science. The flux on CNCS, which is expected to be two orders of magnitude greater than current state-of-the-art instruments, will allow it to address many exciting and technology relevant problems not possible at present.
