Instrument Specifications

FP-13 is a general-purpose flight path that was configured for making total cross section measurements. It views the upper-tier cold hydrogen moderator. The current configuration uses an evacuated neutron guide for the first 30 m, with a collimator in air at 30 m. The beam is then transported in an eight-inch vacuum pipe to 60 m, after which there is about 5 m available for experiment setup. With 6 mm diameter collimation at 30 m, the beam spot is approx. 13 cm square at 63 m.
