Offered Bachelor’s or Master’s Theses Topics

Numeric optimisation of a neutron spectrometer
Mosaic crystals, made for instance of pyrolitic graphite, consist of random oriented crystalline plates. They are used as beam deflectors and monochromators in neutron and x-ray optics. We have recently established spectral collocation as numerical method for computing deflected beam profiles. In this thesis, our theory, and the associated C++ implementation, shall be extended to a rotating stack of tilted mosaic crystals. This simulation shall then be used to optimise the beam optics of the neutron backscattering spectrometer at FRM2. - This work takes place in the Scientific Computing Group of Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum Garching. Optionally, it can be combined with paid C++ programming work.
suitable as
  • Master’s Thesis Condensed Matter Physics
  • Master’s Thesis Nuclear, Particle, and Astrophysics
  • Master’s Thesis Applied and Engineering Physics
  • Master’s Thesis Matter to Life
