Abstract

The design and prototype tests of the Very Low Angle Detector (VLAD) for epithermal neutron scattering at low momentum transfers are presented. The detector will be installed on the VESUVIO spectrometer at the ISIS spallation neutron source for so-called High-energy Inelastic Neutron Scattering (HINS) experiments. It will consist of an array of Resonant Detectors (RD) covering the scattering range 1 degrees-5 degrees. The results of prototype tests with a reduced set of RD units demonstrate the feasibility of the measurement in the adverse environmental conditions of ISIS. Simulations of particle interactions using the GEANT4 code show that the envisaged detector design can meet the requirements in terms of efficiency, cross-talk between detection channels and neutron scattering events in the detector.
