last 2 banks ready

With these two banks, we are approaching the end of the 'detector project' part of PEARL.

With these two banks, we are approaching the end of the ‘detector project’ part of PEARL.


These 2 banks are going to be installed on Monday: it is the wrap up of the design, manufacturing and installation of the main-components of PEARL. A memorable moment, especially for Raymon and Fred who have meticulously worked on ‘encrypting’ neutron counts into light and electronic signals and then Kees who had to undo all that, so that the PEARL user sees a diffraction pattern on the instrument computer screen.

All this would have been way-out of our league if we would have had the support of our ISIS colleagues Erik, Nigel and Jeff: many many thanks from Delft for all your efforts.
