Neutron Scattering Service Groups at BER II

The neutron scattering service groups, as a part of the Technical User Support department of BER II are in charge of the mechanical and electronic maintenance of complex experimental setups for neutron scattering ensuring that the experimental setups are consistently in good technical condition and that the experiments can be operated with high reliability. During beamtime the service groups offer extensive technical support for the neutron user programme. Moreover, they are able to provide on-site technical advice and answers to the instrument scientists as well as during the development of new instruments and the improvement of existing experiments.
