Target

The neutrons that scientists need to study materials and molecules are produced in the target station. It is here that the spallation process takes place when protons from the accelerator hit the target, a 4-tonne helium-cooled tungsten wheel. The design of the target has a direct impact on the number of neutrons that can be generated, and is therefore of utmost importance for the future scientific capabilities of the ESS facility.
