Multiple scattering in deep inelastic neutron scattering : Monte Carlo simulations and experiments at the ISIS eVS inverse geometry spectrometer

By J. Mayers, A.L. Fielding and R. Senesi


A procedure for the evaluation of multiple scattering contributions is described, for deep inelastic neutron scattering (DINS) studies using an inverse geometry time-of-flight spectrometer. The accuracy of a Monte Carlo code DINSMS, used to calculate the multiple scattering, is tested by comparison with analytic expressions and with experimental data collected from polythene, polycrystalline graphite and tin samples. It is shown that the Monte Carlo code gives an accurate representation of the measured data and can therefore be used to reliably correct DINS data.\ud \u
