This slit system was originally developed for the SNS neutron facility and has since found use in many other neutron (and x-ray) facilities across the world.

It features four individually movable blades providing a large 80 mm x 80 mm opening with fully overlapping blades.

For neutron applications, the customer will often provide their own blades. Alternatively we will provide B4C blades or tungsten carbide.
