To help us align the instrument we have recently purchased an optical level (Leica DNA03). We decided to design the support ourselves so that we could optimize the stability and handling of the level.
The design of the support for the collimator tube is finished by Ruud van Tol.
Here you can see this design and an overview of the complete line up.
The detector on its way to the new support.
The detector of our SANS instrument is a He-3 gas-filled detector.
The detector tube is now mounted at the right heigth by extra feet. The electronics are installed on top of the tube.
