ESS Instrument Construction Proposal CAMEA

We propose the construction of a highly innovative spectrometer – CAMEA – offering Continuous Angular and Multiple Energy Analysis. Combining indirect time-of flight with multiple consecutive analyser arrays, this instrument will provide massive flux on the sample and strongly enhanced efficiency in detecting neutrons scattered in the horizontal scattering. The combination yields a spectrometer with completely unprecedented performance - with gains from 2 up to 4 orders of magnitude compared to current state of the art.
