Unconventional Performance of a Highly Luminous Strain/Stress Scanner for High Resolution Studies
In this paper properties of the dedicated neutron strain/stress diffractometer installed at the beam port ST-1 of HANARO reactor in KAERI which has been optimized at a small monochromator take-off angle, are described. Thanks to the employment of the horizontally focusing bent perfect crystal monochromator and the optimization procedure good resolution can be achieved and namely, the luminosity of the instrument can be considerably increased which permits us to enlarge the range of the material depth for residual strain/stress mapping. Moreover, new alternative of the diffractometer permits also to investigate some kinetic processes in polycrystalline materials running within few seconds.
