The ESS suite of instruments will require state-of-the-art neutron detectors with extended performance to fully utilise the source beam. Through the European-Union funded BrightnESS project,...
Feature Series: The ESS Instrument Suite
This series of articles highlights the instruments selected to enter Phase 1: Preliminary Engineering Design, for the ESS suite of instruments. A total of 16 instruments have so far been approved by the European Spallation Source ERIC Council. Twenty-two instruments are anticipated at ESS.
