Summary on Grant Application Form
In collaboration with the ILL, the community in strain measurement by neutron diffraction proposes to build, commission and validate the first dedicated strain measurement instrument at the ILL. The project was chosen by the multi-national scientific council as one of 5 high priority instrument development projects .The steering committee of the ILL have agreed that the ILL should devote internal resources for this joint project. 40% of the construction costs will be met by the ILL and the recurrent costs (manpower, running costs) will be shared equally. After the major building work is completed in year1 the team will have 225 days of beam-time over the next three years to optimize instrument performance and to undertake ground breaking research which cannot be contemplated on the current aging and underperforming triple axis spectrometer adapted for strain work. It will be one of the best instruments anywhere in the world.
