The cold three axes spectrometer PANDA offers high neutron flux over a large dynamic range keeping the instrumental background comparably low. PANDA is situated on the cold neutron beam-tube SR-2 in the Experimental Hall. The high flux is achieved by neutron guide elements in the beam tube, a short source-to-monochromator distance, and the double-focussing monochromator and analyzer crystals. Options for high energy and high q-resolution are available. With dedicated sample environments for very strong magnetic fields and very low temperatures, PANDA is ideally suited for the studies of magnetism and superconductivity on single crystals. Lattice dynamics and magnetic structures are investigated successfully, too.
A polarised neutron set-up using both Heusler monochromator and analyzer as well as a sample-space Helmholtz-coil set for longitudinal polarisation analysis is available.
The sample table of PANDA allows for a variety of sample environments, and may easily be adapted to user specific devices. Among other, PANDA disposes routinely operated sample environment for:
Vertical magnetic field
Typical dimensions for sample space
Flux at sample
PG monochromator vertically focussed, horizontal flat, no collimation:
Filters for higher order suppression
