ThALES - Three Axis Low Energy Spectrometer
The ThALES project is a collaboration between ILL and Charles University, Prague. Its construction was funded by the Czech Ministry of Science and Education.

ThALES is optimized for the measurement of excitations in single crystals in the range of about 0.2 to 10 meV. With its high neutron flux, which is worldwide leading, and its very low background, it can be used to measure particularly weak signals. It allows for extreme sample environment (low temperature, high magnetic fields and pressure) and can be used with neutron polarization analysis.
