Electronics

The Electronics group ensures the technical performance, reliability, and improvement of the neutron scattering instruments in close cooperation with the instrument scientists. This ranges from motor control to data acquisition systems of both new scientific projects and operational machines. After the physical requirements have been defined, respective electronic hardware components are selected, thoroughly tested, and integrated by engineers of Jülich's Central Institute for Electronics (ZEA-2). Ongoing support is provided for hardware as well as the necessary control software interfaces.

Activities

New Aperture system at the Jülich Spin Echo Spectrometer J-NSE

This type of motorized aperture is used to confine the incoming neutron beam and focus it on the sample to ensure that only those neutrons contribute to the recorded signal that actually interacted with the substance. In cooperation with the Central Institute for Technology (ZEA-1) the electronic components, such as motors, encoders, and safety switches, have been selected and integrated by ZEA-2, so that the device can be operated from within the instrument control software. Now it needs to be calibrated in order to function precisely.
