Title

Neutron Scattering Capabilities and Science at ANSTO

Abstract

The Open Pool Australian Light-water Reactor (OPAL) is a 20 MW pool-type multi-purpose research reactor located south of Sydney. The core is surrounded by a heavy water reflector vessel where all the irradiation facilities are located. OPAL achieved criticality in August 2006 and is effectively being utilised for neutron beam research, production of radioisotopes for medical and research purposes, and for commercial irradiations. The neutron beam facilities of OPAL consist of neutron beam tubes that penetrate the reflector vessel, a cold neutron source, beam shutters and neutron guides. A suite of 15 neutron beams instruments utilise both the thermal and cold neutron beams for both atomic and molecular structure determination and dynamics measurements, residual stress measurement and neutron imaging. An overview will be given on the OPAL reactor and its neutron beam facilities, the performance of instruments and user program, and future plans.
