Sample Environment of the FIE-TAX Instrument

HB-1A can accommodate a wide variety of sample environments. For more information, please visit the following page:  https://neutrons.ornl.gov/sample. Once you are notified of an approved proposal, please update your impossible dates in IPTS as soon as possible to ensure that they are accommodated in our instrument schedule. Note that there will be limited scheduling flexibility for experiments requiring sample environments other than closed cycle refrigerators.

Temperature Control Devices

  • Closed Cycle Refrigerator (4–300K)
  • Liquid Helium Cryostat (1.5–300K)
  • 3He-insert (0.3–300K)
  • Dilution Fridge (0.03–300K)
  • High Temperature Displex (30–700K)
  • Furnace (up to 1500 °C)

Magnet Systems

  • Symmetric 5 Tesla vertical field magnet (0–5T, 1.5–300K, or 0.3–300 K with 3He-insert)
  • Asymmetric 8T vertical field cryomagnet (0–8T, 1.5–300K, or 0.03–300K with dilution fridge)

Potential users can go to the equipment webpage to check the available sample environments at HFIR, and it is always useful to contact the instrument scientists for more detailed information and new capabilities when planning for the experiment.
