The small angle neutron scattering (SANS) technique has been extensively used to characterize microstructures and hierarchical structures of materials ranging from about 1 nm to 103 nm in the fields of materials science and life science. However, recent progress in nanotechnology and research of complex multi-component or multi-phase systems and non-equilibrium systems has required the SANS instrument to enable to measure structural information more efficiently with higher structural and time resolution. The time-of-flight small and wide angle neutron scattering instrument TAIKAN has been constructed at the spallation neutron source of the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) in J-PARC to meet such requirements. TAIKAN is designed to cover wide q-range (q = 5×10-4, approx 20 Å-1) simultaneously by using neutrons in broad wavelength bandwidth of about 0.5 – 7.8 Å produced from a coupled supercritical hydrogen moderator. A multi-channel V-shaped magnetic super-mirror cavity was installed and polarized neutrons with the polarization of ~98% for the neutron wavelength above 4 Å.

At the seminar, I would like to talk about the current status of TAIKAN and show the recent topics obtained by TAIKAN .
