"Methods for Neutron Scattering Instrument Design"
1. Review the present situation regarding approaches to neutron scattering
instrument design and the tools available for this purpose.
2. Determine the present and future needs of the neutron scattering community
regarding techniques and design tools for neutron scattering instrument design.
3. Given that these tools can be used in a variety of ways for:
how do we best address the needs of the community in these various categories?
Where do we focus future efforts? How do we share information and codes between
4. How can we validate our design tools? How do we implement proposal mechanisms
that would allow beam time to be devoted to instrument development and code
benchmarking? Should we create dedicated beamlines to test neutron optical
elements, measure their
5. How do we measure instrument performance? Should we define "standard" test to
measure instrument performance? What are meaningful figures of merit?
