Welcome to the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering sample environment page. We look after all the sample environment equipment that is available to users.
We have two sample environment laboratories available for use and four sample preparation laboratories. Here is a complete list of all sample environments currently available.
|Temperature||Magnetic and Electric Fields||Soft Matter||Gas and vapour||Sample mounting|
|Closed-cycle refrigerators||Horizontal magnets||Other sample environments||Pressure devices||Sample changers|
|Cryofurnaces||Vertical magnets||Gas and vapour delivery||Selecting a cell|
|Cryostats||Controlled voltages and current devices||Sample positioning sticks|
|Rapid thermal devices|
|Low temperature inserts|
If you're bringing your own sample environment equipment with you, please let us know so we can ensure that it can easily be mounted to our A-Z systems sample mounting stage. The options for mounting are shown in this drawing and image.
If you intend to bring any equipment that is either a pressure vessel or a vacuum vessel, we require six weeks notice to get the vessel approved by our pressure approvals officer. Please contact Paolo Imperia if you intend to do this and refer to I-4477.
