Publishing Results from FANS/BT-4

It is expected that publications arising from guest researcher experiments, i.e., those publications that do not have an author at the NIST Center for Neutron Research, will include the following acknowledgement:

"We acknowledge the support of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, U. S. Department of Commerce, in providing the neutron research facilities used in this work."

It is EXTREMELY important that all publications containing experimental results from data collected at FANS/BT-4 be cited in the NIST Center for Neutron Research annual report. For publications that do not involve a coauthor at the NCNR, please be sure to send the citation information for your publication (reprints and preprints [and even posters] are appreciated by the instrument scientists) by e-mail (ncnr@nist.gov), fax (301-921-9847), or post to:

         Julie Keyser 
         NIST Center for Neutron Research
         National Institute of Standards and Technology
         100 Bureau Drive Stop 8562
         Gaithersburg, MD 20899-8562

Publications that have a NCNR coauthor will be automatically cataloged as part of our internal WERB review process.

We do wish to maintain an up-to-date listing of all publications- whatever the format!



Note that the FANS spectrometer can be operated in different modes; select the paragraph below appropriate to your data collection conditions (this information is recorded in your data files). Also, note that data taken at 20' monochromator collimation between the dates are actually 40' collimation and vice versa. You should also note the sample environment, e.g.:

The sample was loaded in a cylindrical aluminum can sample container of length 50 mm and diameter XX mm. A closed-cycle He refrigerator was used for temperature control.

Cu(220)

Neutron vibrational spectroscopy data were collected using the FANS spectrometer at the NCNR. A Cu(220) monochromator with in-pile collimation of (20, 40, or 60) minutes of arc and post-monochromator collimation of (10, 20, or 40) minutes of arc were used. Data were collected over the energy range of XX-XX meV. The instrument is described in the NCNR WWW site (http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/) with the operational priciple detailed in the reference "J.R.D. Copley, D. A. Neumann and W. A. Kamitakahara: "Energy distributions of neutrons scattered from C60 by the beryllium detector method" Canadian Journal of Physics 73 763 (1995)"
