Target 4 Flight Path 15L (Chi-Nu)

Target 4 Flight Path 15L (4FP15L) utilizes the neutrons that are produced at an angle of 15-degrees to the incident proton beam from the spallation source. It is unique among the WNR flight paths in that it has two experimental locations available at distances of 22 and 90 meters from the spallation target. The rectangular shutter has variable openings in x- and y- dimensions and therefore allows the neutron flux intensity to be chosen according to experimental requirements. The shape of the beam can also be changed by inserting collimator inserts in the neutron beam tube. This flight path is primarily used for the Chi-Nu experiments at 22 meters and neutron detector development and calibration at 90 meters.
