Institute´s Seminar

The Institut Laue-Langevin operates a number of instruments for neutron capture based gamma ray spectroscopy. Amongst them there are the ultra-high resolution crystal spectrometers GAMS, which operate at a tangential beam tube of ILL’s neutron high flux reactor. From targets in this beam tube gamma rays in an energy range from 50–8000 keV and intensities of 109 s-1 cm-2 eV-1 can be obtained. Based on these extra-ordinary intensities it was possible to develop unique techniques based on gamma ray monochromatisation via diffraction at perfect crystals. The talk gives an overview on a number of experiments in nuclear, fundamental and applied physics profiting from the outstanding performances of the GAMS spectrometers. A particular focus will be made on the recent research of gamma ray optics and an experiment for nuclear resonance fluorescence based radiography of lithium. The future perspectives of these techniques at tunable gamma ray sources such as ELI-NP will be detailed.
