Science Colloquium of NEAT Upgrade Project

NEAT 2016 – achievements & outlook

Neutron time-of-flight spectrometer NEAT allows to study dynamic phenomena at nanoscale in a broads time and frequency domains. The range of application is very broad, stretching from investigations of spin dynamics in magnetic system to molecular or ionic transport in novel functional materials. In 2010-2016 NEAT underwent an extensive upgrade resulting in 300 fold of count rate increase and the world-class performance. In this colloquium we will present a selection of science results obtained on the new instrument.
