Glass-glass sandwich guide (patented)

  • Patented design, principle and procedure for both free-standing and vacuum chamber construction
  • Coated thin glass flattened on a special high-precision vacuum table and then fixed with a thick glass
  • Provides better waviness (1-1.3·10-4 rad)
  • Decreases neutron flux loss especially in long guides with small cross section deriving from float glass waviness
    (about 4·10-4 rad)
  • Gives high stability to a thin substrate
  • Acts as additional shielding
