Topic:  Initial Instrument Concepts for STS

The Second Target Station (STS) will provide unprecedented peak brightness of cold neutrons together with a broad bandwidth resulting from 15 Hz operation. To demonstrate the potential scientific impact of this facility, 8 instrument concepts have been developed. These concepts consist of two SANS instruments, one horizontal surface reflectometer, one direct geometry spectrometer, one diffractometer optimized for magnetic materials, one large unit cell single crystal diffractometer, one multimodal high magnetic field instrument, and one multimodal materials engineering instrument. The science enabled by these instruments will span materials research, provide new capabilities to study quantum materials, soft matter, energy materials, biology, and structural materials. In this webinar, the instrument concepts, performance, and the science they enable will be introduced. It is important to note that these are notional instrument concepts and the instrument prioritization process requires engagement with the scientific community.
