PF1B - Polarised cold neutron beam facility

PF1B is dedicated to the particle and nuclear physics experiments. It provides the strongest polarised and unpolarised cold neutron beam in the world currently available for particle and nuclear physics. PF1B is the simplest but most flexible instrument at the ILL. Some of the experiments just use its neutron beam, other profit from its many devices needed to polarise, form, characterise, shield or remove the neutron beam.

Instrument layout

The layout of PF1B is simple since this facility is mainly an experimental area receiving experimental setups from external laboratories (e.g. Perkeo, aSPECT, Trine, etc.)
