Methods and Instrumentation
On the basis of the given brilliances of present-day synchrotron radiation sources one easily estimates that they should be ideally suited for nuclear resonant scattering: Their brilliance supercedes those of radioactive sources by several orders of magnitude. However, a real experiment will only succeed if the resonant radiation is transmitted efficiently from the source to the detector. Due to the small energetic bandwidth of the nuclear resonance, this is a very challenging task that has led to the development of unique instrumentation like monochromators with sub-meV energy resolution and efficient detectors with sub-ns time resolution.
