    The version 1 of the Sample Environment Communication Protocol to facilitate communication between instrument control workstations and sample environment equipment is now available on GitHub. Cryostats and furnaces are now 3x to 5x faster whilst producing up to 3x less background, a great improvement in efficiency. Muon instruments can now perform experiments at 50% higher pressures on larger samples and neutron scattering clamp cells are going to follow the same route. NMR experiments combined with neutron scattering are now possible and muonium chemistry is becoming reality.

    WP review meeting of all tasks. SECoP is now on GitHub, the low-T goniometer is being developed with attocube, statistics reveal a 22% increase in efficiency at ISIS with faster furnaces and experiments performed with hydrogen under pressure at FRM II or with in-situ NMR at the LLB were very successful.Overview
  • 14th WP Meeting: CSEC, Edinburgh UK, 18 January 2018
    2nd meeting dedicated to high-pressure development (task 3) for choosing the most appropriate materials and defining the specs of the future double-wall neutron scattering pressure cell. We also choose a technique for providing in-situ pressure measurement, a long-awaited feature.
