RELEVANT PROJECTS
Neutron beam characterization at ATI
At the Institute of Atomic and Subatomic Physics of the Technische Universität Wien, the B6 Thermal-Neutron Diamond Detector was used in 2017 to characterize the new white neutron beam line. Beam profile, neutron flux, γ-background and the amount of fast neutrons in this new beam line was measured in real-time with ROSY®.
