nELBE target control

(old version up to June 2018)

The target for neutron scattering experiments is mounted in the centre of the detector setup. For this purpose a target holder with three useable positions is available. This target holder can be moved via a stepping motor.

The remote control for this stepping motor can be done using the lead loop control program or via software using MBS. For the latter the setup values "movetarget", "settarget" and "changetargetauto" can be used (see VME initialization).

The following targets are available:

Target Diameter Length Mass
Fe-nat (+ Polyester) 52 mm 2.5 mm (+ 0.012 mm) 41.60528 g (+ 0.09671 g)
Fe-56 (+ Polyester) 20 mm (+ 0.012 mm) 1.99418 g (+ 0.02602 g)
Fe-nat 99.8% (+Polyester) 20 mm 8.0 mm (+ 0.012 mm) 19.81809 g
Fe-nat 99.8% 20 mm 8.0 mm 19.8205 g
Fe-nat 99.8% 70 mm 8.0 mm 242.5651 g
Fe-nat (ARMCO Weicheisen) 79 mm 4.5 mm 172.1030 g
