Offered Bachelor’s or Master’s Theses Topics

Calculation the neutron transport from the fuel element to the instrument and probably to the detector
The proposed M.Sc. thesis aims to bring the development of new instruments an important step forward. After getting into the required software and codes, the needs of the instruments regarding neutron flux and spectrum of the instruments have to be addressed. A particular focus will be laid on beamtubes and neutron guides for which new instruments and instrument upgrades are underway. Next, a script-based coupling routine for Serpent 2 and McStas is needed in order to transfer data between both codes. Finally, neutron spectra at each beam tube nozzle can be obtained using Serpent 2 and subsequently McStas will provide detailed information important to the instrument scientists. In summary the thesis can be divided into these three phases: 1. Thorough study of the needs of the instruments and getting into the codes 2. Set up suitable models for neutron transport in Serpent 2 and McStas 3. Calculate the neutron spectra at the beam tube nozzles and provide information to the instrument scientists
