THE ESS DETECTOR COATINGS WORKSHOP

Contact person: Linda Robinson

The ESS Detector Coatings Workshop is an in-house production facility that ESS has established in Linköping, Sweden. This facility carries out the manufacturing of 10B4C coatings needed for the construction of 10B detectors, supplying high quality neutron converters. 

The workshop is located near Linköping University due to the close collaboration between the University and ESS. Production capacity exceeds 1000 m2 of 10B4C coatings per year.
