Slide 12

Neutron Choppers Fabrication and gathering of T0 chopper for powder diffractometer in progress. BW Choppers for Backscattering Spect. Five 60-Hz transmission capacity choppers have been conveyed by Astrium, and have finished testing in the chopper lab at Argonne. Second acquisition for 60-Hz data transfer capacity choppers has been granted to Revolve. These will be attractive bearing choppers.

Slide 13

Sample Environment Activities Standards Documented gauges for test environment mechanical interfaces to instruments Communication conventions created and institutionalized Functioning correspondence framework tried Prototype improvement Procuring a few gear things to create test holders, cryostat tails, and so forth SBIR/STTR with Containerless Research, Inc to create mechanized specimen changing at low and high temperatures Developing quick change cooler in a joint effort with Penn State

Slide 14

Sample Environment Activities – cont\'d Basic suite of general example environment hardware will be secured in FY06-FY07 utilizing working spending Inventory will be sufficient to address all issues for standard example situations Operating staff satisfactory to bolster requirements for every single working instrument will be increase starting in FY2005 Working with client gatherings to distinguish needs and seek after advancement of hardware for particular specimen situations White paper and draft strategy on attractive field obstruction issues Self-repaid high-field magnets
