Choppers and Selectors

Many scientific experiments at spallation sources, research reactors, synchrotron sources and photon sources require defined energy spectra, light or X-ray pulses to be selected. Depending on the source, neutron choppers, light choppers, or X-ray pulse selectors are used for this purpose.

Thanks to their contactless magnetic bearings, our choppers and selectors operate for years without requiring maintenance. The drive technology developed at ZEA-1 guarantees maximum phase stability and synchronized operation.
