Critical instrument components have been matched by groups specialising in:
- Detector systems
- Chopper systems
- Neutron Optics and Polarisation
- Sample Environment
- Electronics, hardware units, motion control and personal protection systems
Such groups are providing technical expertise in the design phase, and will provide experimental support once ESS starts operating neutron scattering instruments. They will properly and actively manage standardisation of systems, parts and components, have access to spares and be prepared to provide rapid response in case of either mechanical or electronic failure of critical components to minimise loss of valuable beam time.
