ESR Bridge for Neutron Diffraction Enhancement

Virginia Diodes Inc very kindly hosted Richard Wylde and Jonas Kindervater of Johns Hopkins for initial trials of a novel Electron Spin Resonance Bridge... which will feature VDI high power Sources at 108 and 216 GHz. The Bridge forms part of a complex neutron diffraction experiment devised by Prof Collin Broholm  of JHU which will be run at the NIST Gaitherburg reactor facility to look at novel quantum materials (topological materials, quantum spin fluids ). The bridge routes power from VDI's sources to a long HE11 corrugated probe which drops down inside a magnet to the sample help at sub 1K levels.  A Martin-Pupplet polarizing interferometer allow both linear injection (to give ...
