Abstract

The set-up and alignment of a new small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) instrument, installed at the 1 MW light-water-moderated MINT TRIGA research reactor, are described. The wavelength distribution and the flux at the sample position have been determined. First neutron scattering measurements were made on two reference samples with strong scattering power; the results prove that the SANS signal is well reproduced on the instrument when samples of typical size are used, despite the high level of the background of fast and epithermal neutrons.
