McStas: LLB_6T2 Instrument at LLB

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The LLB_6T2 Instrument

The 6T2 thermal single crystal diffractometer at the LLB.



6T2 is a high flux thermal single crystal diffractometer dedicated to the study of
complex magnetic structures in condensed matter. Two monochromators are available.
It works at 0.9 and 2.4AA without polarization and at 1.4AA with incident polarization
(optional FeCo supermirror) and polarization analysis (P//z).

PG       002 DM=3.355 AA (Highly Oriented Pyrolythic Graphite)
Cu       220 DM=1.278 AA

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
