SONATE: an accelerator-driven neutron source
High Brillance Compact Accelerator-Driven Neutrons Sources


The LLB is currently evaluating the performances which can be achieved with high brillance "Compact accelerator-driven neutron source" (CANS). The aim is to be able to provide to the French neutron scattering community access to a suite of workshorse instruments on-par with the current LLB instruments at the horizon 2025.


The layout of such a facility is presented below.  A compact proton accelerator wouls proton pulses on two targets: long pulse / low frequency target (2ms pulses, 20 Hz repetition rate) to instruments such as SANS, reflectometer, imaging and a short pulse / high frequency (200µs, 100Hz) to high resolution instruments (diffraction, ToF, spectroscopy)
