Abstract

A novel neutron reflectometer with horizontal geometry will be established at BL16 in Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) as a successor of a reflectometer ARISA-II. ARISA-II corresponding to a single neutron beam downward at 2.22 deg has achieved off-specular and time-resolved reflectivity measurements. The novel reflectometer is designed so as to receive two tilted neutron beams (2.22 & 5.71 deg), which gives us an opportunity in investigation on a free liquid surface. The reflectometer can provide a micro-sized beam by slit collimation and obtain a fair reflectivity with small sample area. Also, T0 chopper and neutron focusing mirror are newly introduced. The T0 chopper can suppress the background due to fast neutrons. The focusing mirror produces further reduction of measurement time not only for specular reflection by focusing neutrons on a sample, but also grazing incidence small-angle neutron scattering (GISANS) measurements by focusing on a detector.
