v20 ess test beamline at HZB

V20 Test Beamline at HZB Collaboration Space (login required)

ESS Inside

The ESS V20 Test Beamline provides real-world conditions for ESS and its partners to test engineering and scientific concepts in the development of instruments and their associated neutron technologies.

Constructed at the Berlin Experimental Reactor (BER) II at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), the beamline serves as a general-use test bench for the development of novel experimental methods and components for ESS instrument scientists and neutron technology groups working with optics, detectors, choppers, electrical engineering, and other associated technologies. For this reason, the beamline’s design features an elaborate chopper system that mimics the unique long-pulse time structure of ESS.

Linköping Workshop 1

ESS Detector Coatings Workshop Collaboration Space (login required)

ESS Inside

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.
