BL02 DNA Biomolecular Dynamics Spectrometer


Elucidation of functional origins of materials by measuring atomic and molecular dynamics in nanosecond order

Research ObjectivesBiomacromolecules, Softmaterials, Atomic motion in functional materials, Spin dynamics in magnetic materials.
FeaturesHigh efficiency and high signal-to-noise ratio are achieved to detect meaningful weak signals in inelastic energy region by sophisticated new Si analyzer mirrors coated with a Gd neutron absorber on the rear of a Si wafer, significantly reducing undesirable scattering from glue between Si wafers and their back support.
