Paper Abstract

Very high reflectivity (some 95 % or better) supermirrors, with cut-off angles up to 2 times the critical angle of Ni coated simple total reflection neutron mirrors, can be produced using well established conventional deposition techniques. This performance makes applications involving multiple reflections and transmission geometries feasible, which in turn allow us to use more sophisticated neutron optical systems in order to optimize performance and minimize the amount a scarce supermirrors required. A key feature of several of these novel systems is the distribution of tasks between the several optical components achieving the desired performance by multiple action. The design and characteristics of a series of novel applications, such as polarizing cavities, collimators and guides, non-polarizing guides, beam compressors, deflectors and splitters (most of them tested or being implemented) are the main subjects of the present paper.
