Complex neutron experiments under extreme conditions at BER II

HZB offers access to a large variety of neutron instruments for complex experiments under extreme conditions. Both thermal and cold neutrons are available. The instruments provided with thermal neutrons are located in the experimental hall and the instruments provided with cold neutrons are located in the neutron guide hall. An exception is the diffractometer EXED in the Neutron Guide Hall, which can be operated both with thermal and cold neutrons.

Users who are unsure of which instrument is the most appropriate for their experiment should contact the User Office for help.

In order to achieve the extreme conditions needed for the experiments, HZB  places special emphasis on sample environment for e.g. high magnetic fields, high pressures, high to ultra low temperatures  - and combinations thereof.
