Neutron Imaging Camera

The Neutron Imaging Camera system offers
1680 x 1320 pixels resolution and 231 x 294 mm active area for fast crystal orientation routines.

This system allows a unique digital backscattered neutron Laue diffraction pattern to be recorded as it features a centre hole to allow the neutron beam to pass through the camera system prior to reaching the sample. This configuration allows the neutron scintillator to be positioned very close to the sample, so that a large solid angle of diffracted beams can be imaged.

High sensitivity / high resolution is achieved thanks to the use of custom scintillator and intensified cooled CCD camera read out which enables high electro optical gain down to singe neutron sensitivity.
Extended exposures can be used for unveiling weak diffracting patterns.

Synchronization with pulsed neutron sources down to 100ns at 50Hz repetition rate can be achieved by feeding a TTL triggering pulse to a BNC connector.
Remote real time acquisition is performed via a device server driver.

Cylindrical Neutron Laue Camera System

Ultra low noise, high sensitivity large area 360 degree mosaic neutron imaging detector collects diffraction patterns over 70% of 4Pi steradian.

The detector is based upon an octagon of scintillating plates that forms a 360 degree hollow vertical cylinder 400mm in diameter and 400mm high with the neutron beam entering in the equatorial plane.

The camera delivers a resolution of 2260(h)x7505(w) pixels with 177ยต square (no binning) and 2.5 seconds read out cycle. High sensitivity / high resolution is achieved thanks to the use of custom scintillator and intensified cooled CCD camera read out which enables high electro optical gain down to singe neutron sensitivity.

The detector construction allows the change of the scintillator assembly. The flexible design will also ease the generation of new calibration map files resulting from scintillator change and camera service. The cameras have a 16-bit acquisition mode and a fast 12-bit readout mode.

Exposures of 1ms to a few hours in dynamic integration mode are possible.
