The cold three-axes spectrometer PANDA spectrometer is located in the experimental hall of the FRMII at the SR2 beam-tube. By neutron guide elements in the beam tube, a short source to monochromator distance and the double-focusing monochromator and analyzer, high flux is achieved and the instrument is further optimized for low background.
In addition to standard cold TAS mode, the achievable energy transfer overlaps with thermal three-axes spectrometers, a high Q-resolution setup as well as a polarized setup is available and an up-to-date sample environment offers high magnetic fields and low temperatures.
The performed experiments typically include the investigation of spin waves and crystal field excitations, phonons, excitations in low-dimensional systems as well as quasi-elastic scattering and diffraction with energy analysis. The obtained results give often decisive input for the research of unconventional superconductivity, strongly correlated electron systems, magnetically frustrated and magnetism in low-dimensional systems, but also for lattice dynamics and material science.
The sample table of PANDA allows for a variety of sample environment and may easily be adapted to user specific devices. Among other PANDA disposes routinely operated sample environment for:
typical dimensions for sample space: Ø 50 mm, h = 70 mm
Vertical magnetic field:
